The event

This is the second in a series of seminars that focuses on legal and commercial issues for Heat Networks.  It will provide a toolkit to aid understanding and project management for local or regional heat (and electricity) network schemes. The creation and distribution of low carbon heat is a major element of Government energy policy.  DECC via the Heat Network Delivery Unit (HNDU) has made available funds to Local Authorities to help pump prime Heat Network schemes in their areas. The session will include:

  • A DECC introduction to the role of HNDU and the future of heat networks – from John Saunders, Head of investment at HNDU
  • How to structure and deliver your project – key legal and contractual issues
  • How technically feasible is it to build an energy centre and network of heat pipes
  • How to construct the Business Case which will deliver decarbonised heat
  • Are joint ventures the way forward for heat networks?
  • How to manage Procurement issues

Target audience

This free-of-charge session will be suitable for energy, sustainability, low carbon and environmental managers looking at the options for delivering or growing a heat network in your area. In addition, public sector lawyers, Financial Directors and CEOs interested in revenue generation and/or the strategic approach to energy management should find this of relevance.
