Join us on November 5th to hear from leading energy management experts about how your organization can get ready to thrive in the new low-carbon economy.    Details SMART ENERGY MANAGEMENT: WHAT EVERY BUSINESS NEEDS TO KNOW David Arkell, President, 360 Energy As President and CEO of Hamilton-based 360 Energy, David Arkell has over 25 years of experience in the energy industry.  His presentation will be geared to all key decision makers in an organization.  It will focus on critical actions that are required to be successful in managing energy and how this will provide ongoing benefits to your organization.       NEW ONTARIO CAP-AND-TRADE SYSTEM: LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE QUÉBEC EXPERIENCE Mustapha Ouyed, B.A.Sc., Eng., Environmental Engineer, Climate Change and Sustainability Advisor,        Golder Associates   Sean Capstick, B.A.Sc.,P.Eng. Principal, Atmospheric Services, Golder Associates  Ontario has announced that it will impose a greenhouse gas cap-and-trade system based on the Western Climate Initiative Framework and will link with the existing system in Quebec and California. The Ministry of Environment and Climate Change has stated that the new regulation will be drafted this fall and will have a significant impact on all fuel and energy users in the province regardless of their GHG reporting status. This new system will create significant opportunities for green programs focusing on energy conservation and green infrastructure. Additionally, Ontario has stated that they will jointly develop off-set programs with Quebec.  These pending changes also pose a few key questions: How will the “cap” be set and lowered over time to meet the provincial 2020 and 2030 greenhouse gas targets? How can all businesses benefit from the opportunities to “trade” reduction credits and the creation of offsets? How will the substantial revenues raised from the sale of emission units be used by the government to promote energy efficiency and other GHG reductions? During this workshop Sean and Mustapha will provide insight on the potential impacts of the system and offer suggestions on how clients can engage the Ministry over the next few months prior to the implementation of this regulation.

Osborne Clarke’s experts call for UK Budget to support smart cities initiatives

(PRWEB UK) 17 March 2015

At international legal practice Osborne Clarke, we believe that smart cities are going to be the powerhouses of our future economic success. We need this year’s Government Budget to do three main things to support their development in the UK.

The firm’s International CEO, Simon Beswick, says:

“Smart cities are vital for the UK’s economic future. The Government needs to commit to its role in building and financing smarter cities, supporting innovation and encouraging the best talent to work in the UK.”

Chris Wade, an infrastructure expert at Osborne Clarke says:

“Firstly, we need to provide serious and meaningful support for funding at a government/local government level. There was very little mention of smart cities in the autumn statement and only a few references to creating a northern economic powerhouse. The Government needs a financial and contractual model that allows it and the private sector to invest into major infrastructure projects and have an exit strategy for its investment.”

Erika Jupe, a tax expert at Osborne Clarke says:

“Next, we need to provide further tax relief for R&D projects to SMEs to encourage the development of home-grown, world-beating technologies to support smart cities. As a slow death for the patent box looks likely, the Government needs to consider how to continue to incentivise businesses to invest in R&D in the UK and how to make EIS schemes more user friendly to encourage angel investment in smart cities technologies.”

Karen Cooper, an employee benefits expert at Osborne Clarke says:

“Finally, we need to attract and retain the best talent in the UK for our broader economic benefit. The Government needs to maintain and ideally enhance entrepreneurs’ relief and tax-advantaged employee share plans such as enterprise management incentives.”
