Decentralised Energy Innovation Showcase

Following the great success of Decentralised Energy in May 2014, join us in January 2015 (dates to be confirmed shortly) for Decentralised Energy Innovation Showcase. Building on the earlier platform which focused on building the business case for district heating and distributed energy projects - business modelling, policy and financing. The 2015 forum will drill down in more depth into the operational execution and funding approaches, solutions and innovations of decentralised energy projects that are progressing the industry.

Why Decentralised Energy?

Why Decentralised Energy?

Rising energy prices, security of supply, fuel poverty and the necessity to reduce carbon emissions are among the biggest socio-economic and environmental issues facing the UK currently. A solution to all of these issues comes in the form of decentralised energy, bridging the gap between the big 6 commercial energy providers and the growth of successful new smaller scale projects.

This is a must-attend event for technical, procurement, purchasing and engineering directors working on sustainable energy planning from local authorities, housing developers, landlords, corporations, hospitality as well as heating & cooling, solar and wind technology providers themselves and consultants.
