A unique opportunity to co-create solutions to key energy and sustainability challenges

edie Live's workshops enabled our visitors to work together to solve the key challenges and opportunities they are facing in their mission to achieve a sustainable future. Starting with a blank sheet of paper, we discussed the issues that we face, shared 'war stories' and worked together to create a unique solution to the topic.

Workshop 1
  1. Workshop 1

    Big energy data is here to stay. From heating and cooling through to telephones and lifts, the data an organisation can collect from its energy consumption can be incredibly powerful – but only if its monitored, measured and acted upon correctly.

  2. Workshop 1

    It’s one of the most talked-about topics in the world of energy management, but is energy storage ready to move from ‘innovation’ to mainstream technology? What are the barriers to mass deployment of battery systems? How can storage systems be effectively paired with renewable energy technologies? And how can an energy manager convince others in their organisation of the values of storage?

  3. Workshop 1

    Whether it’s demand response, battery storage or distributed generation, business now have access to multiple energy solutions that can bring significant operational, financial and environmental rewards. But are these solutions currently viable? What are the major obstacles preventing organisations from adopting smart-grid technologies; and how can those obstacles be overcome?

  4. Workshop 1

    It is perhaps the biggest challenge facing the edie Live audience today: how can you increase your sphere of influence and drive engagement on sustainability and energy – from the boardroom to the people on the shop floor?

Workshop 2
  1. Workshop 2

    Thousands of organisations around the world have now pledged in some way to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, but a significant proportion of those companies still haven’t set measurable targets against achieving the goals. So, how can we bridge the gap between ambition and ACTION?

  2. Workshop 2

    At present, the war is not being won. Total waste generation in the UK – including waste from local commercial sources – continues to mount, and recycling rates are not increasing fast enough. Clearly, more needs to be done by businesses across the supply chain in order to make the circular economy a reality.

  3. Workshop 2

    Collaboration has been a sustainability buzzword for several years now, yet thousands of companies large and small still take a siloed approach to sustainability – why? What are the barriers that must be broken down to drive more collaboration on sustainability and CSR projects? And what examples are there of mutually beneficial, cross-sector partnerships that are driving sustainable change?

  4. Workshop 2

    With levels of trust in government and business in sharp decline, and global megatrends increasingly impacting security of supply, the need to adopt transparent, sustainable and resilient supply chains has never been more important.
