Attend the workshops Why you should attend this year's workshops and courses.

Join us in discussing the energy transition & net zero emissions on the Isle of Man

For energy security & economic reasons, as well as climate commitments, there is a growing expectation of a relatively rapid transition away from traditional forms of power on the Isle of Man.  The Energy & Sustainability Centre (ESC) has brought together practitioners from Denmark, Faroes and other islands who have developed strategies to achieve 100% renewable energy as early as 2030.

Shared Knowledge and Experience 

Bringing Isle of Man Businesses together to build a roadmap to a low-carbon future.

The Isle of Man has a goal to become carbon-neutral by 2050. To achieve this, we all need to work together to build a sustainable low carbon future for the Island.
