Heat: The Engine of the Economy

View Proceedings from the day

Heat 15 took place on Wednesday 25th November 2015. We had a great turn out, interesting speakers, lively debates and there was a real buzz in the room.

Through the heat strategies and subsequent publications, the Government has set out its ambition for heat: a less wasteful, lower carbon, affordable system. The scale of change is huge and, unlike the power sector, involves millions of different users, each changing the way they do business and live their lives. As the new Government settles in, Heat 15 was a time to examine sector by sector what it has planned and what is being done to drive the transition. There were some key questions to be addressed: What can Government do to deliver a competitive low carbon industrial sector? How will UK-wide ambition for heat networks be delivered under continued austerity? As the 'internet of things' increases user control over energy, how can this be harnessed to enable a change in the way homes and businesses are heated?

The fourth annual Heat Conference looked at how meeting the needs of the UK economy can be achieved in a rapidly evolving energy sector. Taking place immediately before the key UN Climate Change Conference in Paris (COP21) and the Government's Autumn Statement, the challenges and opportunity around the economy and decarbonisation were central in the minds of the ministers – as can be seen in the announcements that were made on the day. During the conference, we examined different sectors of the heat economy, what works well and what could be done better.
