Summary

Decarbonising the generation and use of heat is hugely challenging, far more so than for electricity.

In the UK, we are heavily dependent on natural gas to meet our heating needs. To reduce this dependence and in order to meet the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED) target, the Government has implemented policies such as the Green Deal and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). Although these have driven uptake of renewable heat technologies, renewable heat is not making a sufficient contribution to meeting the UK’s RED target.  Eunomia has recently completed a full evaluation of the RHI for DECC, which includes consideration of motivations for uptake, supply chain as well as investment opportunities and constraints,  along with a review of best practice in Europe. We have built upon this research to develop ideas related to new policy framework for low carbon heat, which includes energy efficiency both in household and business/industrial settings.

Attending this free lecture will enable you to expand your knowledge of the energy industry, learn about new projects and initiatives, and engage with other knowledgeable industry professionals.
