Green Infrastructure Week highlights the British technologies that will be used to deliver the biggest gains in our global transition to net zero.

The inaugural Green Infrastructure Week is taking place between the 25/29 April 2022 and will be an annual event. Sponsored by AECOM it is supported by several key partners including the Association for Consultancy and Engineering, Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association, Carbon Capture & Storage Association, Energy Networks Association, Innovate UK, Nuclear Industry Association, UK Research & Innovation, World Biogas Association, EV Energy Taskforce and The House is a media partner.

Green Infrastructure Week will deliver insight and commentary for the whole ecosystem of people and organisations involved with green infrastructure from private and public sector buyers to developers and investors – regionally, nationally, and internationally.

Trudy Harrison MP said:

“Green infrastructure and technology are critical to us achieving our goals of tackling climate change and achieving net-zero, and Green Infrastructure Week will bring together and showcase the world-class ability we have within our research, science and engineering sector that will help drive us towards our targets.

“Whether you are in the supply chain for Britain’s nuclear energy programme, involved in rolling out EV charging infrastructure, or carbon capture and storage, or renewable energy, or any other part of the Government’s Ten Point Plan, I am encouraging everyone to get involved in Green Infrastructure Week.”

“I am proud to be an Ambassador for Green Infrastructure Week.”

Making the most of offshore wind

Offshore wind has been identified by the government as a critical source of renewable energy for the nation's growing economy. By 2030, the UK plans to quadruple its offshore wind capacity to generate more power than all homes currently use today. This session will look at what needs to happen to make these aims become reality and the potential challenges and opportunities involved.
