Geo Environmental’s Commercial Director Mike Brown and Head of Rail, Road and Utilities Ed Newman thoroughly enjoyed the recent EUA conference. Thanks to Peter Day and his team for setting this up. It was enlightening to hear what was happening to decarbonise the network from Northern Gas’ Networks Director of Stakeholder Relations, especially the potential opportunities around Hydrogen and there were also great talks from HS2 and the Home Builders Federation. The next few years will be very interesting as the utility sector continues to change.
