The Future of Heat Networks

Wednesday 27th November 2019
10:00  -  10:40

Theatre :  Built Environment, Technology and Innovation 

T3

As climate change climbs ever higher on the global agenda, we find ourselves in the unenviable situation where the simple process of heating our homes is responsible for almost a quarter of the UK’s carbon emissions.

This session will discuss the importance of how, with stringent environmental government targets in place, it’s vital to focus on developing the low-carbon technologies and solutions that will make a significant contribution to decarbonising heat.

One of the potential key contributors to our future low-carbon economy are district heat networks that operate from decentralised energy systems to supply low-temperature heating. Efficiency and cost are the drivers behind district heat, but in terms of reality and the governments targets for 2050, what does this look like?

The panel will be speaking about this from their perspectives as Developer (Pinnacle Power), the Local Authority (London Borough of Islington), the ADE and the House Builder (Redrow):

  • Heat Networks
  • Plans for future Heat Networks
  • How policy has changed to support the move towards a Heat Network to provide cheaper, cleaner energy for all, and
  • Hear about new funding programmes from the Government and innovation to support the development of Heat Networks.

Today there are approx. 500,000 District Heating connections, with the need to rise to at least 18% of domestic connections by 2050 to meet UK carbon targets – this is the equivalent of connecting 8m properties.
