Accountancy and business advice firm BDO LLP has staged its annual Green Energy breakfast seminar in partnership with Suffolk Carbon Leaders, as part of the Green 100 initiative.

BDO is among the sponsors of the Green 100, being run by the East Anglian Daily Times and its sisiter title the Eastern Daily Press to recognise businesses and other organisations which are making a mark in the area of sustainability.

The BDO event, featuring guest speakers from biomass installation company Energy Innovations and LED light specialist LightSense, aimed to highlight the business benefits of new green technologies.

It also provided expert advice on how to structure and finance green projects, and explored the benefits of a free energy review by Suffolk Carbon Leaders.

BDO has raised more than £1billion in funding for green energy projects, equating to more than 500megaWatts of clean energy generation.

Michael Ware, partner and head of renewable energy at BDO, said: “UK companies have witnessed significant rises in energy prices recently and are under increasing pressure, both from a regulatory and commercial perspective, to consider sustainable business practices.

“We are living in a golden period of opportunity to take advantage of green energy technologies and are delighted to be assisting businesses to take advantage of this.”
