Now in its eighth year the conference will once again provide excellent take home lessons from key case studies. In addition, leading industry experts will address issues such as the application of renewable energy technologies, as well as the 1200 Buildings Program, and a panel discussion will focus on making sure you are ready for the upcoming mandatory disclosure of energy efficiency scheme.
