ACE Research is an internationally respected research unit that consistently delivers ground-breaking policy research and evaluation. Its work supports that of the ADE, ensuring our policy positions and advocacy are always founded on and guided by the best available evidence and insight.
Originally part of the Association for the Conservation of Energy, ACE Research historically focused on energy efficiency, specifically in respect to frameworks for implementing energy policy in buildings, barriers to and opportunities for effective implementation and the roles of different stakeholders. Now part of the ADE, ACE Research is broadening its scope to all decentralised energy sectors, including combined heat and power, heat networks and demand response services. Find out more
The Committee on Climate Change’s recent Net Zero report details that heat networks currently provide 2% of UK heat demand, yet the ambition is for this to increase to 18%. The growth in the heat networks sector is essential in supporting the UK’s legally binding net-zero targets.
The ADE hosted its Winter Reception on Wednesday 29 January. This annual event is always a fantastic networking opportunity, and a chance for the ADE to bring together members and colleagues to showcase the brilliant work being done in the sector.
