The Association for Decentralised Energy and the Energy Institute today announced the initial line-up of speakers for their joint conference, Heat and Decentralised Energy 2020.

This year’s conference will take place on Wednesday 25 March at The Crystal, London. Bookings are now live at

Heat and Decentralised Energy 2020 will focus on levelling up with local energy. Decentralised energy is local energy: from demand side response operating on air conditioners in the high street supermarket, to local energy centres serving district heat networks, to the smart systems managing energy in your home, to the apprenticeships on offer at manufacturing sites running CHP to reduce electricity consumption. The UK Government has announced that the ‘levelling up’ of our cities and regions is their top economic priority. It is to decentralised energy that our policymakers must look for local jobs, local skills and local industrial strategy.

At the same time, we are living in a climate emergency. Climate change has never been so prominent in the news or such a widespread topic of conversation. Citizens are making different choices in the food they eat, the products they buy and the heat and power they use, and they’re doing it without government intervention. There is an increasing citizen-led demand for change.

The challenge to the decentralised energy industry is therefore one of leadership; how do we continue to innovate to respond to market demand for decarbonisation? How do we ensure that everyone, both domestic and commercial, benefits fairly? And as the energy system becomes more decentralised, how are we making energy technology work locally, transforming the UK’s regions as well as its cities?

Attracting more than 250 professionals, Heat and Decentralised Energy has earned a reputation for being the leading industry event, providing unparalleled networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities.
