Climate Action reports that UK environmental experts have called on businesses to lead a clean energy “revolution” to boost energy efficiency and combat climate change.

Lord Bourne, the UK Under-Secretary of State for Climate Change, and Jonathon Porritt, Founder Director & Trustee of Forum for the Future, addressed business leaders and government officials at The Crystal in London and urged immediate action to scale up energy efficiency initiatives including smart metering.

Lord Gus O’Donnell, who joined other leading scientists and economists in June to launch the ‘Global Apollo Programme’ research initiative aimed at helping to avoid dangerous climate change, highlighted the importance of the research and development of clean technologies and transitioning to a low-carbon economy.

Dr Robert Denda, Head of Network Technology at Enel, and Sara Bell, CEO at Tempus Energy also addressed the audience and analysed some of the innovative solutions that the private sector is providing to boost energy efficiency.
