Heat and Decentralised Energy Conference 2020 Relaunch | Taking local energy to a global audience

25 June 2020

The ADE and the Energy Institute today announced that this year’s Heat and Decentralised Energy Conference will be held online on Wednesday 23rd and Thursday 24th September.

Originally scheduled for March this year, the conference has been re-scheduled and re-designed in ways which will bring more ideas and insights about the transformation of our energy systems to a global audience.

Ian Calvert, Director of the ADE, said:

We did not plan to host an online conference but we intend to make the most of the opportunity. By expanding the event to two days, making it free to attend and hosting it online, we are able to share some of the great work being done to decarbonise our energy systems with delegates from across the globe.

Louise Kingham, OBE FEI, Chief Executive of the Energy institute, said:

Our energy systems are increasingly interconnected. This is an opportunity to look at and learn from international experiences as we collectively chart a path to a zero carbon future.

Heat and Decentralised Energy will be held online on Wednesday 23rd September and Thursday 24th September 2020. Events will include keynote speeches and plenary debates, CPD sessions, interactive workshops, networking and evening entertainment. You can find more details at
