Alan Asbury, Director of CLS Energy & Chairman of the Low Carbon Club has been confirmed as a speaker at Low Carbon Scotland 2019, a must-attend event for anyone concerned about the effects of climate change.

Titled ‘Driving the transition to a zero-carbon economy’, it’s a unique conference that will address Scotland’s current carbon position and hear from those leading and driving policies and proposals.

As Chairman of the Low Carbon Club, Asbury works with event organiser 3ppp (Public-Private- Partnerships) to investigate the claims of some of the technology providers that look to the club for endorsement. 

When technologies look potentially viable, live trials are conducted which are then metered, monitored and measured to prove real life benefits to other Low Carbon Club members. With more than a 10 years of energy management experience, he is a Chartered Energy Manager and Certified Measurement and Verification Professional (CMVP®) with the UK Association of Energy Engineers and his input will be valuable at the event, where one of the focuses will be how the public sector can reduce its carbon emissions.

The current situation will be highlighted and a discussion on how this can be improved and delivered will play a central part in the conference, with some world-leading technologies, innovations and examples of best practice showcased.

Low Carbon Scotland believes the country’s ambitious plans cannot and should not be delivered by government alone and that every household and every organisation have a role to play. 

LCS’S aim is to enable and support the changes required now as well as stimulating the innovation and creativity required for the future. Tackling climate change is a moral responsibility but also an economic opportunity. Low carbon technologies will revolutionise the global economy and the Scottish Government provides resources such as Climate Conversations and Greener Scotland – Let’s Go Greener Together – to help companies and organisations understand why climate change is an issue and what we can collectively do to reduce our own impacts.

And while Scotland is a world leader in tackling climate change and the country’s transition to a more prosperous, low carbon society is already well under way, partnerships between all sectors are vital to overcoming the challenges and in discovering new opportunities to help create the future that we all want for Scotland. Paul Wheelhouse, the Minister for Energy Connectivity and the Islands will once again deliver the keynote address at this year’s sixth annual conference in June at Edinburgh’s Dynamic Earth.
