Following the success of last year’s inaugural event, Heat 2013 will be held on 27 November at London’s Royal Society, designed to be the UK’s only heat-specific conference.
Organised by the Energy Institute and CHPA, Heat 2013 will bring together government policy-makers and industry leaders from the DECC, National Grid, the Green Investment Bank, Mitsubishi Electric and E.ON.
The organisers state that affordable heat is vital for industry and householders alike, but currently accounts for half of UK energy demand.
It is felt that heat is “too often the Cinderella of the energy debate”, organisers say, but its central role makes it a key consideration if the UK is to meet its decarbonisation commitments.
The conference has accordingly been established as the place to debate and explore all aspects of heat.
Heat 13 will therefore explore how to deliver the potential for affordable, low carbon heat set out in the Government’s 2013 Heat Strategy.
The event will consider four major themes:
How do we put consumers at the centre of the low carbon heat transformation?
How can we ensure affordable heat for industry, businesses and householders?
How can we achieve vital heat infrastructure investment? What do investors need?
What benefits are available by bringing local and central government, industry and householders together in partnerships?
