A master class discussing how to use the waste heat from electricity generation to decarbonise our cities will be held on 30 May at Prince Phillip House.
The master class will be hosted by William R H Orchard MA (Oxon) MBA CEng FIMechE MCIBSE MIET FEI with a panel of experts to show how to model and design to retrofit the domestic sector to heat networks.
The class will explain why the EU must treat heat from fossil CHP as renewable, when it has a lower carbon footprint, than heat from electric heat pumps using fossil electricity.
The objective is a common basis for analysing CHP so that results from models can be readily compared. The alternative is for DECC, ETI, CCC, and other models from consultants advising on energy policy to be in the public domain so their assumptions are transparent and can be questioned.
