As techUK looks to set a net zero plan for the tech sector, the need to switch to renewable energy is going to be essential for members of all descriptions. However renewable energy procurement is extremely complex with REGOs, PPAs, on-site generation and needing to ensure renewables are in fact renewables all acting as complications for firms looking to ‘do the right thing’. Pricing is also difficult as is being able to understand the relationship between generators, brokers and landlords.

In this webinar we will hear from Innovative Energy and Ren on what is the best way to approach renewable energy procurement, pitfalls to avoid and how to ensure the supply is truly renewable and meets your needs. We will also hear from a member who will share their experience and strategy.
