Sustainable Viable Heat Network Workshop

To register for this event, please email

With many councils planning town and city-wide heat networks there are many questions as to what is the most effective and efficient direction for your network.

We have designed a one day event to bring together local councils who can share their experiences of developing and delivering heat networks. 

The event will take place at King’s Place on York Way, London on April 14th and will include a tour of the King’s Cross energy scheme.

Delegates will hear from councils who have already been through the process of developing a viable heat network and organisations that specialise in the field of decentralised energy.  The day will cover case studies, procurement route options, asset ownership, lessons learned, routes to market, funding and you can ask your own specific questions of our speakers.
