An on-going series of online Webinars to help you on the road to decarbonising your buildings. Not by 2030, not by 2050, but starting now.

This webinar is aimed at Consultants, Developers, M&E companies, and Cost Consultants who are involved in the development and specification of BEMS and other building systems, in both new-build and refurbishment projects. It will provide practical measures that can be taken now to decarbonise your project, both in terms of operational and embodied carbon.
This webinar is aimed at end-users and occupiers of buildings who are involved in the day-to-day management of a building through its Building Energy Management System (BEMS). It will provide practical measures that can be taken NOW to decarbonise your building. The panel has been selected from across the industry and includes BEMS manufacturers, industry bodies, SSE as systems integrators and, representing our target audience, an end user.
This webinar is aimed at Facilities Management professionals who are involved in the management of buildings via a building energy management system (BEMS). It will provide practical measures that can be taken now to decarbonise your buildings. The panel has been selected from across the industry and includes BEMS manufacturers, industry bodies, a facilities manager, and a systems integrator.
From 15 June 2022 new Building Regulations come into force which specify that buildings should conform to BSEN 15232 | ISO 52120 Class A. In this webinar, we will be discussing this controls standard and how it can be used to decarbonise your projects. This webinar is aimed at Consultants, Developers, M&E companies, and Cost Consultants who are involved in the development and specification of BEMS and other building systems, in both new-build and refurbishment projects. It will provide practical measures that can be taken now to decarbonise your project, both in terms of operational and embodied carbon. The panel has been selected from across the industry and includes BEMS manufacturers, industry bodies, consultants, and SSE representing systems integrators.
Having a secure remote connection between your BEMS and your service provider has many benefits in terms of decarbonising. From identifying plant that this set to manual to testing operating efficiency and energy monitoring. This webinar will discuss possible remote decarbonisation strategies and practical steps to make it happen.

There is a broad consensus that buildings in operation do not perform as efficiently as they could. There is often a significant gap between predicted and achieved performance that results in part from short-comings in briefing, design and construction, and in part from poor operation. Programmes, such as 'Soft Landings', adopt strategies to ensure the transition from construction to occupation is 'bump-free' and that operational performance is optimised. We will discuss how such programmes can help to improve energy efficiency over the lifetime of the building and thus help the decarbonisation process.
Recent geopolitical events mean that energy security cannot be taken for granted this winter. Most energy efficiency and decarbonisation plans focus on either sourcing lower-cost energy or switching to renewables. However, 70% of buildings in the EU and UK are energy inefficient and so addressing this could significantly reduce both costs and help to decarbonise This webinar will concentrate on the practical things that building users and facilities management can do to reduce energy usage this year, without capital investment.
Any climate action strategy's basis is tracking and accurately measuring your carbon emissions. Understanding your carbon footprint and the different types of emissions, classified as scope 1, scope 2, and scope 3, can be challenging. In this webinar, we will discuss the different classes (scope) of emissions and looks at practical ways to reduce those that arise from your buildings. This will be aimed at building managers and facilities management professionals.
Despite the urgency, many organisations are delaying decarbonisation because of budget concerns. If the decarbonisation plan predominantly involves offsetting, this will incur additional costs. And if you look at self-generation and invest in renewables based on your current energy consumption, you can over-specify the additional plant and end up spending more.
Aimed at consultants, specifiers and building managers, our cross-industry panel will be discussing what practical actions can be taken to minimise the expenditure associated with decarbonising buildings.
Lighting accounts for typically between 20-30% of a building's energy, and thus carbon. The type of lighting used and the control strategy used to optimise its use can play a major part in decarbonising your buildings.
The inclusion of space analytics in connected buildings alongside other integrated systems can have significant benefits, in terms of decarbonisation, occupant wellbeing and optimum space utilisation. This webinar, aimed at consultants and specifiers, building managers and facilities management, will discuss the merits of integrating space analytics and the possible building systems that can integration can be applied to.
Whilst other parts of SSE are targeting the long-term goal of reducing reliance on fossil fuels, the Smart Buildings team is helping organisations to target short-term energy and carbon reduction by eliminating waste through effective building controls. This is an unashamed revisiting of our webinar from May 2022, because a lot has changed since then, and it has never been more important to understand how energy-efficient your building is. This cross-industry collaboration is aimed at both consultants, specifiers and managers of buildings to help increase energy efficiency to aid decarbonisation.
Let’s talk about the importance of building services data and how it can be used to increase efficiency and support cybersecurity, as well as take you on the path of decarbonisation. As part of SSE’s ongoing series of presentations by key suppliers direct to our customers, Matt Scully, Senior Design Partner at Trend Controls, will be discussing the value attached to connectivity and ways to optimise and enrich your building data.
