Oxfordshire Greentech is hosting a range of events geared towards helping our members hear from some of the best speakers in their sector, network with likeminded innovators and investors, and have a platform to showcase their own work among their peers. Our events give our members the opportunity to find out more about innovations and developments in their sector and form collaborative, forward-thinking partnerships across sectors – our events help our members to create an impact and make a difference.

Oxfordshire Greentech was launched on 6 February 2019 at a hugely successful event attended by over 250 delegates. Read more here.

Oxfordshire Greentech is proud to use Bioregional’s One Planet Living principles.

These principles target each aspect of sustainable living, ranging from Zero Carbon, to Local and Sustainable Food, to Health and Happiness. They map onto the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and allow for a holistic approach that helps you work greener and live healthier and happier lives. We use them to help categorise the different topics our events are based on.

B4 LIVE: ESOx – New Low Carbon Hub Programme

8th July 2020 | 12 pm BST

Online webinar

Find out how effective an ‘energy services’ approach can be in reducing your org’s energy bills and reliance on traditional fuel sources.

The Low Carbon Hub has for many years supported organisations across Oxfordshire with advice and funding to help reduce both energy consumption and contributions to climate change. It has now launched its latest programme, Energy Solutions Oxfordshire, (ESOx) to accelerate this transformation and to enable even more organisations to improve their resilience through reduced energy bills and greater on-site energy generation. Commercial buildings account for 40% of energy used in Oxfordshire, so local business has an important role to play developing sustainable strategies to help achieve our climate change goals, whilst in the process benefiting from the greater resilience this brings.

Through this relaxed session we aim to provide real examples of success and show how an energy services approach through ESOx can help you overcome some of the barriers and pitfalls that may be encountered along the way. This session will be introduced by experts from the Low Carbon Hub and will be a truly interactive session with information relevant to most Oxfordshire businesses, charities and social enterprises.

You will go away knowing the wide range of opportunities available to you.
