PRESENTER 1: JONATHAN COHEN - ENERGY LAWYER - EVERSHEDS
'District Heating in the UK - The Big Opportunity!'
This presentation will summarise the key contractual, legal and structural issues in developing large scale district heating projects in the UK including recent industry developments
PRESENTER 2: CHRISTINE CAMBROOK - SENIOR ENGINEER - BURO HAPPOLD
'Heat Demand Mapping as a Stepping Stone to District Heating Delivery'
Heat demand mapping is commonly used as a first step to identify areas which may be suitable for district heat delivery. This is an interesting process which relies on multiple secondary data sources to build up a map of the heat supply sources and heat demands in a physical area. This presentation will discuss the inputs, opportunities and constraints around heat mapping.
Christine is a Senior Sustainability Engineer at Buro Happold, she is a Chartered Engineer and Member of CIBSE. She has managed sustainability projects across a variety of scales, from small housing developments through large masterplans to borough and city wide energy mapping.
Her experience covers energy and water strategies, heat mapping, and carbon emission management. Christine and her team have recently delivered district heating feasibility studies for the London Borough of Camden and Birmingham City Council.
PRESENTER 3: ROBIN WILTSHIRE - TECHNICAL DIRECTOR - BRE
'International Research and Developments in Modern District Heating'
The importance of this topic lies in the fact that as the UK is an emerging market for district heating, state of the art techniques from countries with mature district heating markets could be deployed from the outset. This presentation examines some early pilot schemes that have implemented very low temperature supply and integrated a host of different renewable technologies.
Robin Wiltshire works primarily on CHP, renewables and district heating for BRE as a Technical Director. He leads a team at BRE that carries out feasibility work for local authorities supported by the government's Heat Networks Delivery Unit. He is currently the UK representative and Chair for the International Energy Agency (IEA) District Heating and Cooling research programme; key recent topics have included low temperature networks and integration of renewable energy sources.
