The low carbon heat sector is on the verge of significant policy and regulatory development. Energy demand for heat is an important contributor to UK carbon emissions and net zero means that government needs to take action now.
The development of the low carbon heat sector will present opportunities and risks to new and existing energy market players. This one-day training session will unpack the scale of the challenge ahead, current and future policies, and potential decarbonisation trajectories. We will look at current policies such as the Heat Networks Investment Project and key technologies including heat networks and heat pumps.
Attendees will participate in group exercises to highlight the range of potential technologies that can be deployed to hit or support net zero and learning will be underpinned by the use of case studies of decarbonizing economies and locations.
