KEYNOTE STAGE 2
Leading the UK’s net zero heat transition. Go faster together than we can alone
03 March / 13.15 - 14.00
Commercial heat represents nearly 40% of UK emissions. We will not reach net zero without radical change. Given the size of heat as a proportion of UK energy demand, the decarbonisation of heat will have broad impacts across the whole energy system.
Through shared vision and intention, a group of ambitious organisations across multiple sectors have come together to develop HEATzero – an action group focused on innovative solutions built around collaborative demand in heat decarbonisation.
Topics to cover:
- The importance of a shared vision and intention towards commercial heat decarbonisation
- The role of innovation in tackling this urgent heat challenge
- Potential examples of joint heat decarbonisation projects
