Heat & Decentralised Energy

Heat and Decentralised Energy 2018

Terminal Velocity: Setting the pace in energy innovation and policy

Thursday 29th November
The Crystal, London

When the smart energy transition is changing your world now, how do you plan for the future?  

From the growing significance of decentralised energy to industrial flexibility and the allure of peer-to-peer trading, the energy industry is already unrecognisable.  The only certainty is that more change is coming.

The energy industry, its customers, policymakers and regulators need to understand the trends and rules of the game in this fast-moving environment to stay relevant, gain competitive advantage and be prepared for the challenges ahead.

Heat and Decentralised Energy 2018 – hosted by the Association for Decentralised Energy and the Energy Institute - will explore how the energy system is reacting to an increasing pace of technological change and a growing pressure to make deep emissions cuts in heat, power and transport.  The conference is built to help you ensure your readiness for the changes that are coming, delving into what customers want and expect in this new era and the new models and technologies that are emerging to serve them.

This one-day conference will explore how this heavily and complexly regulated sector will continue to transform with technology.  How might regulatory inertia block change? How might customer demands trigger the need for a different system?  And how can large scale infrastructure investment be supported in an era of constant change?  We’ll be talking about how to unlock customer pull, discussing how policy and regulation can shape and respond to rapid change, exploring lessons from different infrastructure sectors and getting excited about innovations emerging in decentralised energy.
