Join us to address green skills and jobs at Heat and Decentralised Energy 2021

2 September 2021

Registration is now open for Heat and Decentralised Energy 2021: Green Skills and Jobs, a three-day virtual conference hosted by the Association for Decentralised Energy and the Energy Institute.

This year’s conference will take place online from Wednesday 29th September to Friday 1st October and is completely free to attend. You can register to attend at

Heat and Decentralised Energy 2021: Green Skills and Jobs will explore how the decentralised energy sector can respond to and position itself for growth in green skills and jobs, and how we can use this opportunity to continue to advocate for the support the sector needs. The Prime Minister’s Ten Point Plan is estimated to support up to 250,000 highly skilled green UK jobs by 2030 and the Green Jobs Taskforce has made clear recommendations on driving investment in net zero, building pathways into good green careers and ensuring a just transition for workers in the higher carbon economy. Bringing together industry, partners, stakeholders and policymakers, the conference will put heat, power, flexibility and efficiency in the green recovery spotlight.

Confirmed speakers include:

  • Bill Adams, TUC Regional Secretary, Yorkshire and Humber and member of the Green Jobs Task Force
  • Polly Billington, Chief Executive, UK100
  • Andrew Esson, Director of Industrial Strategy at Newcastle College and member of the Green Jobs Taskforce
  • Charlotte Large, Strategy, Policy and Innovation Director, EQUANS, and head of Heat Network Industry Council Skills Working Group
  • Susie McDonald, Managing Director, Calibrate Energy
  • Nick Robins, Professor in Practice – Sustainable Finance, Grantham Institute, London School of Economics
  • Russell Smith, Founder and Director of Retrofit Works and member of the Green Jobs Taskforce
  • Lisa Trickett, Co-Founder, Places in Common

Over the three days of the event, you’ll also have the chance to hear insights, experiences and ideas from UK and global leaders and exemplars in decentralised energy, to share your ideas and to network with others across the local energy sector.

We hope you can join us online from 29 September to 1 October. Register your free place today at
