On Monday June 26th 2023, delegates joined us for a collaborative webinar organised by CIGRE UK NGN and CIGRE Austria NGN on ‘How the transition to net zero can succeed – technical and economic aspects’. Delegates learnt about the latest technical and economic aspects of transitioning to a net-zero carbon economy. Our expert panel discussed the challenges and opportunities of this transition and provided insights into successful strategies. This was a fantastic opportunity to learn from industry leaders and network with like-minded professionals.
