Capital Ideas is a podcast series dedicated to looking at the world of digital transformation brought to you by the team at Capital Law. From cyber security to education, and everything in between, we will be looking at how different sectors have had to rapidly digitalise to keep up with emerging trends, and as a response to COVID-19.
For the last episode in the Digital Transformation series, our host, Sue Wardle, talks to Liz Gibbons, who leads our social housing team, and Kate Evans, who leads our energy practice, about how adopting new technology could revolutionise the energy and housing sectors. We discuss the demystification of retrofitting and its role in meeting carbon neutral goals, the funding available, and the importance of getting tenants on board.
