  • Why great energy procurement is crucial for net zero Aug 4 2021 10:00 am UTC 60 mins
    Michael Mahoney and Alex Pitman, Co-op Power
    Michael Mahoney, Energy Procurement & Risk Manager, and Alex Pitman, Energy & Carbon Manager at Co-op Power, share their expert insight into deep green energy procurement at the Co-op and why it is the crucial building block for the journey to Net Zero.

    The renewable energy market has grown dramatically in recent years as thousands of industrial and commercial businesses announce their sustainability commitments and look for innovative ways to decarbonise their own businesses, as well as that of their supply chains. But for all of the hype, two very real challenges remain: cutting costs and carbon.

    The climate crisis requires committed and collective action from everyone, from corporate and exec level right through to operations, logistics, and the shop floor of any business. But many simply cannot get past the jargon and don’t understand the vital steps required (and in what priority order) to reach the zero-carbon destination.

    For those businesses and leaders looking to accelerate their renewable energy goals, they need to first understand:
    • the practical options available for decarbonisation and the impact on energy procurement
    • common elements in supply contracts and securing ‘genuinely green’ renewable electricity
    • managing demand changes and procurement best practice
    • how all of this fits into the bigger picture of Net Zero

    Register for this fantastic webinar to hear how Co-op Power manage these challenges for the Co-op, as well as a number of Britain’s biggest brands. They will share their lessons learnt and the importance of ‘co-operation at scale’.

  • Location, Location – the challenges to siting onshore wind farms in Scotland Recorded: Jun 29 2021 59 mins
    Richard Mardon, Statkraft UK
    The UK Government recently announced it will set in law the world’s most ambitious climate change target, cutting emissions by 78% by 2035.
    With onshore wind being the lowest-cost and fastest way to generate clean electricity, analysis suggests a doubling of current installed capacity is required. Does that mean wind farms will be popping up all over Scotland? Richard Mardon, Head of Onshore Wind Development for Statkraft UK will take us behind the scenes of the development process, with a step by step guide on the challenges faced in finding the best sites to maximise Scotland’s excellent natural wind resource.

    Speaker: Richard Mardon, Head of Business and Project Development, Statkraft UK
    Richard has more than 30 years’ experience in power and infrastructure projects around the world. Since 2002 he has worked exclusively in onshore wind in the UK, and has had oversight of the development, construction and operation of several completed Scottish wind projects.
    Previously a Board Member of RenewableUK, Richard holds an MBA from the London Business School and a degree in Civil Engineering from the University of Surrey.

  • How PPAs can help you deliver your net zero ambitions Recorded: Apr 13 2021 60 mins
    Nigel Holden and Michael Mahoney, Co-op Power
    Michael Mahoney, Energy Procurement & Risk Manager, and Nigel Holden, Head of Co-op Power, share their expert insight into Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs), the benefits, the different types, and how they can help organisations achieve zero carbon emissions.

    The climate crisis increasingly requires committed action at a corporate and exec level. For those businesses and leaders looking to accelerate their renewable energy goals, Power Purchase Agreements (PPA) are a viable option and will help achieve long-term sustainability goals and demonstrate your commitment to the growth of renewable electricity as part of your net zero ambition.
