These five priorities set out the Liberal Democrat agenda for government of "building a stronger economy and a fairer society, creating opportunity for everyone".
The UK Green Building Council today attacked the Government's announced proposals which could see Display Energy Certificates (DECs) for 54,000 public buildings in England and Wales abolished.
EuroSite Power Inc., (OTCQB: EUSP) an On-Site Utility™ solutions provider, offering clean electricity, heat, hot water and cooling solutions to hospitality, healthcare, housing and leisure centres in the United Kingdom (UK) and Europe, has signed an agreement worth approximately £1.39 (US$2.13) million with Basingstoke Sports Centre, UK.
DECC opened on Monday 9 February a call for evidence on the non-financial barriers to more widespread deployment of gas-fired combined heat and power (CHP).
Discussing 'what are the advantages of CHP? these free workshops, which are to be held in March in London, Birmingham, Bath and Manchester are specifically designed for Local Authority planning officers, environment, energy and sustainability managers from County, District, Borough and City Councils, Directors of Environment, Housing and Planning (for public buildings).
A leading British district heating pipe system manufacturer, CPV Ltd, has installed a brand new pipe coiling machine at its Hampshire manufacturing base to help meet the increasing demand for the Hiline Flex pre-insulated PEX pipe system.
This report covers the aspects of the CLNR project that tested the level of flexibility customers can offer in how they generate and use electricity and includes enhanced profiling of domestic customers with Micro-CHP.
COGEN Europe invites you to join them on 25 February 2015 to discuss the benefits of decentralised production of heat and power for householders and small energy users in the spotlight
The Scottish government announced a £20m investment into improving the energy efficiency of Scotland’s housing stock; in addition DECC confirmed this week that it would introduce new laws aimed at improving energy efficiency in the private rented sector.
As revolutions go, the rise and rise of decentralised energy has until now been rather a quiet one. Without the drama and fanfare of a multi-gigawatt new-build project, it’s easy to miss. But slowly and steadily, decentralised solutions are changing the face of the UK’s energy system. And increasingly, the wider sector is beginning to take note. The man at the centre of the sector’s gradual paradigm shift "clear-eyed pragmatist and contagious enthusiast" Tim Rotheray, director of the Association for Decentralised Energy talks to Utility Week about how how the decentralised model of energy use is turning long-held assumptions on their head, and why challenges remain for this potentially game-changing sector.
The conference will comprehensively explore the heating and cooling sector, including its role in achieving the EU's climate and energy objectives. It will initiate debate and build consensus on how to ensure full participation of the heating and cooling sector – which accounts for half of the EU's energy consumption - in the energy transition.
The government has today announced the results of the first auction to offer payments to companies that curb energy demand, revealing that 22 projects are to share £1.28m.
E&T reports the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions dropped in 2013 by 2.4 per cent, according to official figures, with the country’s energy sector contributing the most to the reduction.
The utility is inviting commercial customers that promise to reduce their electrical usage when temperatures soar and demand for electricity is high. or every megawatt of reduction that a customer or aggregator of buildings provides, Con Edison will pay up to $500,000 over three years.
The Commission today launched work on the Energy Union; a fundamental step towards the completion of single energy market and reforming how Europe produces, transports and consumes energy.
The National Measurement Office published the Heat Networks Scope Guidance today, which provides clarification on the criteria used to judge whether a network is in or out of scope of the Heat Network Metering & Billing Regulations 2014.
Today the Department of Energy and Climate Change awarded organisations £1.28m to help reduce peak electricity demand as part of the UK's first ever pilot auction.
The work will provide detailed estimates of current and future Demand Side Response potential in Great Britain to inform auction parameters in relation to the Transitional Arrangements and the main Capacity Market. Phase I will require the development of a DSR supply curve and sensitivity analysis and Phase II will develop a model to enhance DECC’s existing modelling of electricity supply and demand.
