The Vanguards Network met in Edinburgh to discuss the theme of leadership and organisation for district energy.

The purpose of the one day workshop and evening reception was to bring together local authorities from across the UK who were already involved in district heating – the pioneers. The day involved a mix of presentations and breakout discussions, with over 50 attendees mostly from local authorities, but also the private sector and academia.
