Background

There are growing market opportunities for companies that are developing innovative environmental products and technologies. Specific opportunities include the development of low carbon technologies to meet Code for Sustainable Homes targets, or benefit from feed-in tariffs, smart metering and the greening of government procurement.

However there are many challenges in moving good ideas through research & development to demonstration & commercialisation. This leaves many start-ups, inventors and existing companies scratching their heads.

Where can good market intelligence be found?

Target audiences

The workshop is aimed at companies with less than 250 employees based in the South East of England that produce low carbon, resource and water efficient products/ technologies. Those that may be especially interested include: CEOs, Managing Directors, Development Directors, Marketing Directors, Innovation Directors, Inventors and Consultants.
