The Vanguards Network met in London to discuss the theme of financing district energy.

This one day event brought together leading municipal energy practitioners (including 21 local authorities and a housing association), UK and Scottish Governments, and a range of commercial industry representatives to discuss issues around financing district heating initiatives.

The workshop was split in two halves, with the morning being for the public sector and the afternoon combining public and private sectors. The workshop summary report can be found below.

We are very grateful to Ramboll, Powerpipe and UK Government Research Councils’ (RC-UK) Energy Programme for financial contributions to this event.
