Good Carbon, Bad Carbon

Claire Corlett

In the transition to #NetZero, businesses, organisations, communities and households, will need to decarbonise, produce and consume sustainably, and regenerate a sustainable bio-economy. To explore these cross sector, cross supply chain opportunities, Geovation and its partners, HM Land Registry and Registers of Scotland have launched a series of #GeovationNetZero talks.

In our second #GeovationNetZero talk Good Carbon, Bad Carbon, we are delighted to welcome three organisations each speaking on a different aspect of managing decarbonisation and the role location-based data, modelling and analysis may play.

Joining us from the Energy Systems Catapult (ESC) we will hear from Bunmi Adefajo (Business Leader: Modelling) and Ben Walters (Senior Modelling Analyst). They will explain how ESC are using data (including location-based) to develop Local Area Energy Plans and models; exploring how different communities and regions might transition to net zero carbon energy systems.

Lockleaze Loves Solar is the brainchild of David Saunders. David will describe this community approach to establishing solar energy in Bristol, which is promising to deliver not just renewable energy for the neighbourhood but other economic and social benefits for its inhabitants besides.

Martin Warne, the founder of Folarity, is on a mission to develop technologies to help increase the forest cover of the UK and tackle the nature and climate emergencies. Their primary focus is on developing Forest Planner to make sure the right tree gets planted in the right place.

Join us at #GeovationNetZero Talk 2 Good carbon, Bad Carbon for some fascinating talks and approaches, stimulating discussion and good company. We look forward to seeing and hearing you!
