Last week, delegates from Sustain attended the Energyst Breakfast Briefing, hosted at the London Capital Club, where the new 2016 Heating Report was launched. The event focussed on the challenges and recent developments in low carbon heating from the perspectives of a variety of speakers as well as outlining the key findings of the report.
The 2016 Heat Report, published and curated by the Energyst, provides insight from 81 industry figures into how heat can be decarbonised. The findings suggest a high level of organisations are increasingly looking at low carbon methods of heating, particularly Combined Heat & Power and Heatpumps. The report also includes in-depth insights from five individuals involved in low carbon heating, including our very own Strategic Development Manager Chris Jennings. The report is available to download here.
Chris joined speakers, including Tim Rotheray – Chief of the Association for Decentralised Energy and Julie Allen – Energy Manager at Nando’s, at last week’s event, addressing the audience on the ‘opportunity of heat networks’. He stressed the potential for improvement within existing heat networks, stating that currently, only 50% of networks are operating efficiently and that alongside the government’s £300m investment in heat infrastructure, there is a huge opportunity for heat users and suppliers.
The findings of the report and the positivity surrounding the event suggest an exciting future for low carbon heat throughout the UK. We look forward to working with our clients and partners in achieving cleaner, more efficient heating systems for the future!
