Join us in Burgess Hill for a Business Networking Breakfast. These events are a great way to build your energy-saving knowledge by hearing from expert speakers, being inspired by real-life case studies, and networking with others over a pastry and coffee! Hear from expert speakers on how you can get to know and take control of your energy use, including David Greenfield of SOENECS on energy audits, and Sal Mustafa and Vicky Vaughan of Boss Controls on Building Management Systems.
