Agenda DAY 4 – Tuesday 25th October 2022 Technology at the heart of the net zero revolution: The tech sector has the extraordinary potential to unlock renewable energy systems at scale. According to some estimates, digital technologies could help reduce global carbon emissions by up to 15% – one-third of the 50% required by 2030. While the exponential growth of new technologies is accelerating net zero progress, the energy-intensive increase in computational and manufacturing efficiency can, in turn, lead to counter-productive effects. Join us on day 4 for a close-up on the climate impacts of the tech sector, shedding light on the risks and opportunities in the tech market, and its role in the net zero revolution.
Agenda DAY 3 – Wednesday 12th October 2022 Speeding up the energy transition: The energy transition is more than just developing a low-carbon economy: it involves the transformation of the entire global energy system to meet net-zero targets. Against a backdrop of regulatory uncertainties and elevated energy prices, how can the private sector lead the energy transition and drive rapid change, while ensuring fair access to affordable and reliable energy for all? Day 3 will explore how companies can create robust, sustainable business models and seize the opportunities derived from a global transition to a cleaner, smarter and more resilient economy.
Agenda DAY 2 – Wednesday 21st September 2022 Financing the transition to net zero: Investors and companies have a pivotal role to play in the transition to net zero, laying the groundwork for a more stable and sustainable economy. Funding this future will require, by some estimates, up to an extra $3.5 trillion a year, creating a major shift in capital allocation. Given a plethora of net zero pledges have now been made across the financial sector, have we seen a discernible difference in investments and financial activities over the last year? Day 2 will discuss progress made and still to happen in the financial sector. It will also provide investors, insurers and banks with practical insights and useful pointers to help them successfully integrate climate considerations into their investment process.
Agenda Webinar 1 – Wednesday 7th September 2022 

What progress have we made since COP26? 

Major commitments were made at COP26, from ending deforestation by 2030 to helping nations adapt to climate change. Have we seen any notable progress to net zero as a result? The upcoming COP27 will be the first COP to be held in Africa, shifting the spotlight towards the needs of the most climate-vulnerable countries. Will climate leaders in the developing world seize the momentum and take the lead on tackling urgent issues around climate mitigation and adaptation, and securing fairer energy access? How can developed countries support clean transitions in emerging and developing economies?

Join us for the first webinar in our series as we assess progress made since last year and explore the potential of COP27 to ensure a climate-resilient future for all.

Overview The UK government's Levelling Up and Regeneration Bill aims to revolutionise regeneration across the country. As currently planned, the Bill will offer new funding for housing and infrastructure, and give authorities more control over their budgets and transport systems. The accompanying Levelling-Up Fund is one of five ongoing funding initiatives designed to help authorities boost their local economies. But this new flexibility comes after a period of unprecedented spending - the pandemic cost local authorities £11.9 in additional costs and lost income, according to one estimate - and amid a cost of living crisis. This means that while local authorities must be poised to capture opportunities to innovate, they must do with so with extreme cost discipline. This webinar, produced in partnership with VMware, will investigate how the levelling agenda impacts IT service provision among local authorities and how an effective approach to cloud computing can help them balance flexibility and cost. Speakers:
  • Pete Swabey, Editor-in-Chief, Tech Monitor (Chair)
  • Joseph Langford, Head of Strategy, UK&I, VMware
  • Martyn Wallace, Chief Digital Officer, Scottish Local Government Digital Office

The Next Step in Public Sector Transformation: How to supercharge data analytics in the UK public sector

Wednesday, 23rd Mar 2022


The ability to derive insight from data is essential to the success of technology initiatives. Leaders across the public sector are well aware that data analytics capabilities are no longer a 'nice to have', but an essential driving force for transformation. Yet data analytics projects continue to be hamstrung by persistent issues that are difficult to overcome.

Tech Monitor convened central and local government data experts to dissect how digital leaders in the public sector are super-charging their analytics capabilities.

Our expert panel discussed how public sector leaders can take their data – however messy, incomplete or imperfect – and turn it into transformational insights that ultimately create real change for UK citizens.

Register to watch now and gain practical insights into how these hard-won lessons can be applied to your own organisation.

Discussion questions
  • What are the most pressing issues faced by public sector data leaders? How did the pandemic change the conversation around data analytics? Where are the current stumbling blocks?
  • How can organisations overcome the enormous challenge of cleaning the data? Does this have to be the first step for any digital transformation initiative? If not, how should poor, incomplete or biased data be handled, to avoid drawing incorrect conclusions?
  • What value is there in “democratising data” – making analytics available and accessible to departments outside of IT and technology? What are the challenges with this approach?
  • How should leaders govern, control and monitor data science projects, especially if they are outside traditional technology departments? What is the right balance between empowering employees to solve their own problems, and maintaining rigorous processes that produce reliable, high-quality results?
  • What does the future of data science look like for the UK public sector? Will data science become part of the skillset for most strategic roles?
