Event Details

We would like to invite you to our Final Stakeholder Engagement Workshop 

"Heat Decarbonisation Pathways for Northern Ireland – The reality will be somewhere in the middle"

We have changed the title of the workshop to better reflect the common idea of lack of silver bullet for Heat Decarbonisation in Northern Ireland.

 

The event will be a blend of keynotes and panel discussions on:

1. What are the strategic visions for heat decarbonisation from key stakeholders in NI heat sector?

2. What are the current barriers and opportunities for heat decarbonisation?

3. How can the low carbon heat technologies work together with new low carbon agenda?

4. What are the missing pieces of the puzzle – in technology, finance, regulations, behavioral change, and business models?

We will present our findings from the project, which has involved a wide range of stakeholders in the series of workshops discussing opportunities and barriers towards low carbon heating systems in Northern Ireland.

We would like to hear your ideas on future prospects of heat decarbonisation in Northern Ireland.

This is the final workshop organised under the UKERC sponsored networking project “Zero-IN on NI Heat” http://www.ukerc.ac.uk/programmes/networking-fund/barriers-opportunities-zero-emission-ni-heat-sector.html
