Registration, Networking & Exhibition
Inclusive growth and low-carbon heat
With the rapid decarbonisation of the electricity grid and the falling costs of renewables bolstering the case for electric heat, are we in a stronger place to make that case?
What are the industrial opportunities for Scotland and the UK from the heat transition, and can the promise of cheaper, smarter heating be realised?
Q & A
|10:30||Networking, Exhibition & Refreshments|
Planning a clean future for heat
The Scottish Government is helping local authorities pilot an ambitious approach to local heat planning which, if done right, could provide the blueprint for low-carbon heat industries to flourish.
So how are these plans shaping up, what benefits might they provide and will they really work for the industry?
Q & A

Hydrogen: the future’s hybrid?
With the CCC suggesting electric and hydrogen heat could be complementary, could both live side by side in the future? Could, and should, hydrogen save the gas grid?
Find out if the answers to heat policy’s most puzzling questions are any closer.

Sticks, carrots and chasing clean growth
Both the UK and Scottish Governments have been busy looking at what levers they’ll need to pull over the next decade to draw low-carbon heat out of the slow lane.
Regulation looks likely to play a more prominent role, but is it possible to transition from subsidy across our different sectors? And how can we make sure that the new business models, enabled by our ever smarter energy system, thrive in the new environment?
