OxFutures II Conference

You are invited to join us for the next OxFutures Conference taking place on Friday 27 September, 9.30am to 4.00pm at Oxford Town Hall.

Please join us to hear about the growing low carbon economy in Oxfordshire and how you can be a part of it.

Oxfordshire is nationally at the forefront of the low carbon energy transition and its businesses are playing a leading role. Our speakers will explain how this is being achieved and what exciting developments are coming next.

We’ll hear from SMEs who are embarking on some innovative projects in the low carbon space and those making their contribution to lowering energy demand by installing energy-saving measures. There will also be plenty of time for networking and meeting new contacts.

This is a free event is for anyone involved in an SME in Oxfordshire plus anyone interested in the low carbon economy.
