The Event

Keele University is leading the way in sustainability – not just in their ambitions to become carbon neutral by 2030, but also through their teaching and ground-breaking research into climate change and renewable technologies.

Keele is sector-leading in environmental education and conducts world-leading research into environmental sustainability. Having all the elements of a small town, their campus acts as a living laboratory for innovative climate-saving projects such as Europe’s largest Smart Energy Network Demonstrator and the Low Carbon Energy Generation Park which provides 50% of the campus electricity through renewable sources.

The University has also been announced as the project lead for HyDEX – a programme designed to support and foster the creation of a new hydrogen economy across the Midlands region, with collaboration opportunities available to businesses based in Stoke-on-Trent and Staffordshire.

You are invited to the Keele University campus to find out more about these exciting projects and how your organisation can get involved.

Come along on Wednesday 17 May 2023 for the next sustainability campus tour and networking event at Keele. The session will include:

  • An overview of Keele’s sustainability projects, and how these local initiatives are contributing to the global challenge of climate change.
  • A tour of the Low Carbon Energy Generation Park and the Smart Energy Network Demonstrator control centre.
  • A chance to discuss your organisation’s sustainability needs with experienced academics and professionals.
  • An opportunity to network with like-minded businesses looking to reduce their carbon footprint and have a positive impact on the environment.
