"COGENERATION IN THE UK" will focus on some of the key opportunities and challenges for CHP in a fast-moving and decarbonising energy system. The Conference will consider how changes to electricity network and gas networks will affect CHP, as well as the technological, operational and market innovations which are taking place across the sector.
