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 President’s Reception is an annual occurrence in the ADE events calendar, and is a firm favourite for those who attend. This year’s reception was held on the evening of Tuesday 14th July, with attendees from across the decentralised energy sector. Current events meant that we were forced to get creative, hosting our guests on Zoom rather than with the customary lunch at the House of Lords. As an alternative celebration, after some thought and with kind support from event sponsor, Vattenfall Heat, we were delighted to partner with Coolhurst Vineyards to provide each attendee with a bottle of Côtes de Provence rosé to enjoy during the reception.
Ahead of the Economic Statement scheduled next week, nine energy efficiency industry groups, including the ADE, have come together to write to Rt Hon Rishi Sunak MP, calling for the introduction of major energy efficiency stimulus within the UK economic recovery package.
