Scotland Excel's latest Net Zero event attracted more than 200 delegates

Scotland Excel’s Energy Efficiency Conference and Expo ‘Building a Net Zero Scotland’ took place in Edinburgh in May with more than 200 people from across the built environment and energy efficiency sectors in attendance.

The one-day event was held to launch the renewal of our Energy Efficiency Contractors framework. It brought together leading experts to discuss how the public and private sectors can work together to combat the climate emergency and achieve the Scottish Government’s goal of a Net Zero Scotland by 2045.

The day was launched by Patrick Harvie MSP, Minister for Zero Carbon Buildings, Active Travel and Tenants' Rights who was followed by an impressive array of speakers.
