Event Details

On the 4th July, the SIRACH Network in collaboration with Islington Council and the GreenSCIES Initiative will hold a meeting focusing on Smart Energy Networks of the Future. 

 

 In order to tackle climate change, most countries worldwide have set ambitious targets to significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. A significant focus has been placed on the decarbonisation of the electrical grid leading to sustained growth in renewable energy. Decarbonisation of heating and cooling in urban areas has been facilitated by the deployment of local heating and cooling networks. These smart energy networks deliver low carbon, affordable energy to local communities by connecting flexible electricity demands such as heat pumps to intermittent renewable energy sources such as solar power. The use of district heat networks varies widely between different countries and across the world with key differences in technologies and implementation. This workshop will share knowledge on the development, challenges, and opportunities of smart energy networks. 

 The meeting will bring together experts in the field of smart networks to share their insights. Information on available funding for the development of heat networks will also be available.
