In order to meet the government’s zero-carbon targets, there are currently a number of support programmes and tools that can help local authorities in their journey. However, this landscape is not always centralised in one place, so it can be confusing and difficult to navigate through. To find some clarity, this webinar will showcase a few useful tools you might want to use more efficiently, which include:

  • The navigator tools from Connected Places Catapult
  • Net Zero Go – SLES Business Model archetype from Energy Systems Capultand
  • The community support available through Net Zero Places Innovation Network from Innovate UK KTN

This online session will focus on sharing and learning from different projects as well as discussing how you would like to be involved in the future.
