Government policy and regulation is vital for the creation of all electric buildings and a net zero future but there is plenty of room for the private sector to innovate and lead change, say the experts.
FLICK THE SWTICH: Following is an edited report of what was shared live at the event and in pre-event interviews.

This is your guide to achieving Net Zero and all-electric buildings.
