Webinar: Smart Energy Solutions to Help Deliver your Net Zero Targets

Free webinar and resources to help cut energy costs and consumption for growth beyond COVID

Date: 11th March 2021

Time: 10.00am GMT


Join Powerstar for a free webinar to explore how smart energy solutions can help retail businesses with short-term energy efficiency goals and cost reductions as well as longer-term strategies to help deliver on net zero.

As the UK moves cautiously towards easing and ending lockdowns – with England set to re-open non-essential retail again mid-April[1], the impact of COVID-19 and the value of the sector to the UK economy is recognised in the Spring statement as,

“worth £44.6 billion of Gross Value Added (GVA) in the UK in 2019, employing around 1.2 million people.”

It will continue to be a challenging time for retail, but the British Retail Consortium (BRC) is confident in its vision, laid out in the Climate Action Roadmap[2],

By 2040 the retail industry will have transformed to deliver our ambition for net zero carbon emissions.  It will be serving a UK population of over 70 million people and shaping net zero supply chains across the world.”

Energy management and consumption reduction can play a key part in helping recovery and growth in the sector – and “a 20% reduction in energy costs can represent the same bottom line benefit as a 5% increase in sales”.

This Powerstar webinar will examine the practical ways UK retailers can work towards net zero while focusing on power resilience, energy costs, and consumption reduction, with real-life case studies and the opportunity to ask questions from industry experts.

Powerstar has helped thousands of businesses reduce energy consumption and running costs, as well as enhanced power resilience across a host of sectors.  In addition to the forthcoming webinar to help businesses in achieving their net zero goals, retailers can find a wealth of free resources, including webinars exploring cash-positive investment strategies to reduce energy consumption post-COVID, and energy efficiency funding opportunities.  Case studies and FAQs for smart energy solutions, including energy storage, are also available on the website.
