Clean Energy for Business Parks - FREE webinar
4th March 2021

West Sussex businesses looking to make the transition to clean energy and reduce their operating costs can get help through a free online seminar.

The Clean Energy for Business Parks virtual event is for business parks or groups of businesses keen to find out how they can work together to generate, store and share more energy from sustainable sources, such as solar or wind.

Delegates will hear from UK and European energy experts, including the West Sussex County Council Energy Services Team, who delivered the 4-year, Interreg 2Seas-funded Business clusters Integrated Sustainable Energy PackageS (BISEPS) project.

Through BISEPS, partners have worked with business parks in the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands and France to help them collaborate and increase investment in green energy.

The County Council will share its experience of working with the Manor Royal Business District near Gatwick Airport to encourage businesses there to invest in clean energy infrastructure and set up a local energy community.

Attendees will also get a preview of the new online REACT tool which businesses can use free of charge to help them identify which combination of clean energy technology will deliver the best financial and environmental return.

With REACT, companies will simply need to input information about their activities, how much energy they use and some basic environmental data. In return the system will produce a summary of suitable clean energy solutions, such as largescale solar, wind or heat networks.

Companies, groups of companies or a whole business park can use these results as a guide to developing detailed feasibility work and, potentially, business cases for investment. REACT can also be used by developers to inform green energy plans for a new business park or by planners who may be asked to consider planning applications for renewable energy systems.

The County Council’s involvement in BISEPS is part of its commitment to supporting businesses and the green energy sector in the county. With BISEPS at an end, the County Council is now working with UK and EU partners on the Interreg 2Seas-funded LECSEA project to develop the findings and establish a number of local energy communities.


This online event will take place on Tuesday 16th March, 14.00-16,00. You can find further information about the BISEPS Regional Seminar, including details of the agenda and how to book, on eventbrite.
