ERP – ETI – RAEng workshop on Heat: 22 January 2009
The Energy Research Partnership, Energy Technologies Institute and Royal Academy of Engineering organised a workshop to examine the role of heat in the UK’s energy system.
Heat accounts for about half of the UK’s current CO2 emissions and was the subject of a consultation by Government. The workshop was designed to raise the level of thinking on heat as an issue, help guide ETI’s future work on heat, and inform participants’ responses to the consultation.
Context setting presentations covered whole systems, policy, and technology angles; followed by an interactive panel discussion with senior figures from private and public sectors.
