The UK District Energy Vanguards Network hosted a free one-day workshop in Bristol on Tuesday 19th November 2019 to help local authorities consider how planning, spatial strategies and heat network development and management can help to shape a zero carbon future.
More than half of UK local authorities have declared a Climate Emergency and the drive to cut carbon emissions has never been stronger. Heat networks have always presented opportunities for carbon savings, but how will they remain competitive in a zero carbon world? What should you be thinking about if you’re developing a new network? And how do you ensure that existing assets are flexible and adaptable to a “post-gas” future?
On the day we explored the changing drivers for heat networks in a zero carbon world, shared experiences of the role, potential and power of planning as a driver of change, and identified strategies and tools to enable the development of future-proof heat networks.
As promised, the day was interactive and engaging, with discussions, debate and networking.
The event was made possible by our lead sponsors Vattenfall and our further sponsors FVB, Natural Power and Switch2.
