Top industry and government speakers confirmed for Heat Conference 2012

9 Oct 2012

Heat accounts for nearly half of the UK’s energy use and associated CO2 emissions. If we are going to achieve significant cuts in greenhouse gas emissions, manage energy costs, and deliver secure and affordable heat to customers, heat needs to be a major focus of government and industry strategy.

To help shape thinking on the issue of heat, the CHPA and the Energy Institute are hosting the Heat Conference 2012 on Thursday 15 November at the Royal Society, London.

We are delighted that Ed Davey MP, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, will be addressing the conference.

Alongside Ed Davey, confirmed speakers include:

  • John Gummer, Lord Deben, Chair of the Committee on Climate Change
  • Joan MacNaughton CB HonFEI, President, Energy Institute
  • Professor Matt Leach CEng FEI, Vice President, Energy Institute
  • Graham Meeks, Director, CHPA
  • Dr David Clarke FEI, Chief Executive, Energy Technologies Institute
  • Malcolm Ball CEng MEI, Non-Domestic Energy Efficiency Lead, UK Green Investments
  • Kelly Butler, Marketing Director, BEAMA
  • Jane Forshaw, Assistant Director, Stoke City Council
  • Andrew Keating, Managing Director, BDR Therma, UK Boiler Division
  • John Marsh, Operations Director, Inexus and MKC
  • Simon Skillings, Director, Trilemma
  • Dave Sowden, Chief Executive, Micropower Council
