The Heat Is On The Race To Replace Domestic Gas
21 January 2021
“The Heat is On” tackles one of the most complex challenges the UK faces in its net-zero ambitions – the decarbonisation of domestic heat.
In this, the third in LSBU’s Climate Emergency Debates Series, we present ‘The Heat is On…’ in which we will see our panel of industry leaders examine the fiscal, technological and legacy issues that are shaping the UK’s urgent race to replace domestic gas in order to decarbonise the nation’s heat.
Starting with LSBU’s research into alternative heat systems, we will discuss the various factors and assumptions that are affecting investment in the competing low carbon options at national, regional and domestic level.
Our panel will then take the discussion around the UK, sharing insights into some inspiring trial schemes across a range of technologies, demonstrating how agile, integrated solutions might challenge the way we currently think about the heat conundrum.
As we close with the burning question – Who should pay and who should profit? – we will look at the case for investing in UK-based heat pump manufacture and a national ‘low carbon heat’ skills initiative that could fuel a green revolution.
DO COME AND JOIN US.
As usual, we’ll be encouraging active participation with an audience vote for the ‘One Big Ask’ that would make the change the world needs, and a lively Q&A session with our panel of experts. At LSBU’s Climate Emergency Debate series, we don’t just discuss the topics that matter. We aim to equip audiences with tools to turn theory into action in their working lives.
This event will take place on Zoom webinar. Registered guests will receive a Zoom link ahead of the event.
The distinguished list of speakers includes Andy Ford, Jan Rosenow, Mark Hewitt, Richard Lowes, Mike Jenkins and Graeme Hawker.
