Scottish Renewables: Low Carbon Heat Conference – Virtual
24th September 2020
24th September 2020 | Virtual
10:00am – 12:50pm
Scottish Renewables works towards growing Scotland’s renewable energy sector and aims to inform on how renewable energy can help heat and power Scotland’s homes and businesses.
The Low-Carbon Heat Conference will discuss the decarbonisation of heat which will aid Scotland in its Net-Zero goals. This event is aimed towards anyone with an interest in the development of the low-carbon heat sector.
- 10:00 – 11:15 – The Future of Heat Networks in Scotland
- 11:15 – 11:35 – Break
- 11:35 – 12:50 – Realising the potential of efficient, electric heat – Matthew Black, Kensa Contracting, Business Development – Scotland & North England will be speaking in this session
The promise of ultra-low-carbon heat from heat pumps is now a reality thanks to our rapidly-decarbonising electricity supply and advances in heat pump technology. But how do we mainstream their use in Scotland?
The Scottish Government requirement that all new homes use low-carbon heat from 2024 should help bolster the market, but that can’t be the limit of our electric ambitions. Heat pumps can deliver benefits in urban areas, and are already being used to balance our increasingly renewables-driven electricity supply.
In this session you’ll learn:
- How regulations making low-carbon heat mandatory for new-builds from 2024 can drive volume in the market
- The market potential offered by existing off-gas-grid homes
- How the sector could take advantage of these opportunities
- 12:50 – Event Close
