This has been quite a week, flying off to Chile to speak at Smart Energy Fest. EiD would like to thank all the organisers for a great event. It was also good to meet separately with members of Chile’s ESCO association, ANESCO. These are early days for Chile’s energy efficiency strategy but there is every reason it will do well.

COP 24 is now on in Katowice, Poland. We’ve been reading with great interest about the discussions underway as well as all the side events. You can follow many of the activities here.

The English poet, painter and printmaker, William Blake (1757-1827), makes us stop and reflect upon these words this week: “Without contraries is no progression. Attraction and repulsion, reason and energy, love and hate, are necessary to human existence.”
