Levelling up with local energy –  further speakers confirmed for Heat and Decentralised Energy 2020

25 February 2020

With one month to go until Heat and Decentralised Energy 2020, the Association for Decentralised Energy and the Energy Institute today announced further speakers who will be sharing insights and experiences on the day.

This year’s conference will take place on Wednesday 25 March at The Crystal, London. Bookings are now live at

The UK Government has announced that the ‘levelling up’ of our cities and regions is their top economic priority. It is to decentralised energy that our policymakers must look for local jobs, local skills and local industrial strategy. Decentralised energy is local energy: from demand side response operating on air conditioners in the high street supermarket, to local energy centres serving district heat networks, to the smart systems managing energy in your home, to the apprenticeships on offer at manufacturing sites running CHP to reduce electricity consumption.

At the same time, we are living in a climate emergency. Climate change has never been so prominent in the news or such a widespread topic of conversation and there is an increasing citizen-led demand for change.

How does the decentralised energy industry continue to innovate to respond to market demand for decarbonisation?  How do we ensure that everyone, both domestic and commercial, benefits fairly?  And as the energy system becomes more decentralised, how are we making energy technology work locally, transforming the UK’s regions as well as its cities?

Attracting more than 250 professionals, Heat and Decentralised Energy has earned a reputation for being the leading industry event, providing unparalleled networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities. Heat and Decentralised Energy 2020 is sponsored by Calor, Danfoss, EON, Kyotherm, Pinnacle Power and Uniper.
