5th National Decentralised Energy Conference – Tapping into Local Energy Sources

Coventry Transport Museum, Millennium Place, Hales Street, Coventry CV1 1JD


DEKB (Decentralised Energy Knowledge Base)

The Event

Following the recent GLA report into Secondary Heat Sources, this conference will focus on the methods and ways to tap into existing thermal energy sources in your own area. This includes waste heat from industry and other local heat sources. With an increasing focus on delivering district energy networks with ever lower carbon intensities, the search for renewable and very low carbon energy sources which exist within urban areas is becoming increasingly important. This year’s conference in Coventry will bring together speakers on this topic and will also offer delegates the chance to visit the UK’s latest district energy scheme. The scheme in Coventry uses an innovative “heat shipping” concept to transport waste heat from a mile outside of the City Centre and is the first in the UK to do this. The heat is used in Civic buildings and the Cathedral in the heart of the City Centre. Through a targeted approach, the conference will provide one-to-one advice and support. Together with plenty of time for questions, this will provide the ideal platform for Public and Private sector organisations to interact with a range of the UK’s leading industry experts, offering a specific knowledge which is essential to delivering Decentralised Energy projects in the UK. SWM will be attending this event as exhibitors and would like to speak with local authorities regarding the support we can provide to progress CHP and district heating schemes.
