Low-carbon heat: Project launch event

1:30-4pm on 11th October 2016, Central London


ERP held an event to launch its new project on Low-Carbon Heat (see project page for details). This project is considering options for low-carbon heat to understand their implementation issues for customers and utilities, and their implications for energy systems.

The meeting set out to gain insights to help shape the research priorities of ERP’s new project, and to highlight upcoming workshops. Attendees came from a broad range of sectors including construction, utilities, academia, oil and gas, regulators, and research funders.

Two new ERP reports on Heating Buildings and Hydrogen were also launched at the event, providing insights into aspects of the transition to low-carbon heat. The discussion on the challenges of delivering low-carbon heat was informed by perspectives from three speakers:

  • Peter Bonfield, Chief Executive of the Buildings Research Establishment (BRE)
  • Neil Schofield, Head of Government and External Affairs for Worcester, Bosch Group
  • Jenny Hill, Senior Analyst at Committee on Climate Change

A discussion session with the Panel and audience helped gather views to inform the new low-carbon heat project and identify priority areas.
