About this talk

Speakers will outline how The Midlands Green Recovery can be delivered by low carbon technology innovation in local businesses. By reflecting back on history, we will consider the global importance of key commercial Greentech players in The Midlands today that are capable and ready to deliver the post-COVID-19 Green Recovery. The talk will include the vision for a low carbon future using technologies like fuel cells, biofuels and hydrogen. This vision will support and grow a local business ecosystem that delivers the energy transition, moving us all away from our carbon-intensive economy today. Three speakers will share their knowledge on the past, present and future significance of Greentech in the region, and discuss the unique local strengths to deliver the Green Recovery:
