This is the seventh in our series of annual professional development events for all those interested in the measurement and verification of energy savings. Presented remotely as a series of two-hour sessions, MAVCON22 will be spread over five successive Wednesday afternoons starting on 12 October, with sessions between 15:00 and 17:00 (UK time) to accommodate international visitors.
The programme for 2022 has a strong ‘zero carbon’ flavour:
