Join EHP at the 37th Euroheat & Power Congress to see how our sector can contribute to and benefit from an ever-more connected world!
The Association has produced a draft response to a DECC consultation on the non-financial barriers to gas CHP, and would welcome members' comments.
The Coventry District Energy Scheme, operated by Cofely GDF SUEZ is now fully operational and delivering low carbon heat to key public buildings across the city-centre.
The Government has today confirmed that it will exempt small housing sites from a key part of the zero carbon homes policy.
DECC has commissioned Grant Thornton and Pöyry to undertake an independent evaluation of EMR. The purpose of this evaluation will be to assess the effectiveness of the processes in practice and the contribution of the programme so far to UK Government energy and climate change objectives. As part of this evaluation, Pöyry and Grant Thornton are seeking the perspectives of a wide range of stakeholders and have asked us to circulate this to our readers.
Improving energy efficiency has an important role to play in delivering affordable, sustainable and secure energy for the UK. 99.9% of the UK’s businesses are SMEs - the SME guide to energy efficiency aims support the UK’s SMEs to unlock the benefits of energy efficiency.
More than two thirds of EU countries face European Commission legal action and possible fines, after failing to translate the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive into national law. Euractiv reports.
DECC published today Amendments to the Heat Network Regulations 2014. A briefing note is available to members.
Local Authorities on the front line of tackling cold homes can now apply for their share of a £25 million Central Heating Fund, the Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey has announced.
The Association has produced a short briefing note on a recent DCLG ministerial planning update, which announced decisions on the Government's Zero Carbon Homes small site exemption and how Councils can set discretionary energy standards above national level in their development plans.
The Association for Decentralised Energy will be holding its inaugural meeting of the new Demand Side Forum next month, bringing together industry leaders in energy management, demand response and demand side energy services.
The Green Investment Bank highlighted district heating and combined heat and power as two of the top ten ways to unlock the benefit of greener cities infrastructure in their report launched today.
These reports that set out potential pathways for the eight most heat-intensive industrial sectors to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve energy efficiency.
Around £42.1bn has been invested in low-carbon generating capacity in the UK since 2010, according to DECC and within the document DECC forecasts that between now and 2020 we expect investment in renewable and natural gas-fuelled Combined Heat and Power (CHP) systems of around £5 billion.

Energy efficiency is often hailed as being the cheapest alternative fuel that we have (e.g. the image shown below). It can be a bit tricky to quantify though since there are many gray areas and a vast array of different technological possibilities. Finding trustworthy data giving an overall impression of the cost of efficiency is therefore quite challenging. Energy Collective want you to join the debate on internalized costs of energy efficiency
Ed Davey MP, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, saw energy saving in action on a visit to an ENER-G CHP project at Solihull Hospital.
Verco were commissioned by DECC to review the UK industrial energy efficiency evidence base. These are the reports from the 2-phase project to answer three key questions: what are the existing trends in industrial process energy use; what is the technical and economic energy efficiency potential over the coming decades; and what are the barriers to uptake of energy efficiency improvements, including the question of what evidence exists that quantifies or compares barriers.
From 22 June to 26 June 2015, Cranfield University is organising the 9th edition of its Combined Heat and Power (CHP) course. The Course will provide delegates with an understanding of CHP technologies with conventional fuels and renewables taking into account current challenges. A key aspect of the course will be the assessment of financial viability of a cogeneration system involving several factors.
DECC and Ricardo AEA will both be presenting to Association members at next week's Building Forum, including an updated report on small-scale CHP sales.
