Property and construction sector professionals are being invited to a major green energy conference in Liverpool in October which includes six hours of CPD training.
The inaugural Green Power Forum (GPF) takes place at Liverpool’s new BT Convention Centre on October 15.
GPF chairman Mark McManus said the event’s purpose is to spread the latest knowledge, learning and expertise in renewable, low carbon and sustainable energy technologies. It is specifically targeting professionals responsible for making homes, buildings and communities greener including housing associations, architects, consultants, developers, engineers, energy managers, facilities managers, and local authorities. The green technologies being examined will cover heating, hot water, ventilation, lighting and electricity generation.
“The GPF’s stimulating programme is designed to give clear practical advice and instruction,” he said. “All delegates will receive six hours of CPD training - one sixth of the professional annual entitlement. Both the public and private sector are under enormous pressure to become more energy efficient and find environmentally friendly alternative forms of heating and power. This is where the GPF comes in providing best practice advice and training in going green.”
The GPF will be divided into sessions hosted by leading industry experts including:
Speakers will include Hergen Haye from the Department of Energy and Climate Change and Kelly Butler of British Electrotechnical and Allied Manufacturers Association (BEAMA).
Tickets are priced at £90, and are discount to £80 for RIBA members.
GPF sponsors include the Environment Agency, Envirolink, Liverpool City Council, the Liverpool Chamber of Commerce, Wirral Council, and Stiebel Eltron UK,
