Consultant at Eunomia Chloe Bines will be shining a light on Zero Carbon Zones (ZCZ) at the Renewable Energy Association’s upcoming conference DECENTRAL: Transforming our energy system.

Appearing alongside other high profile industry figures, Chloe’s presentation ‘Future Cities: Developing Zero Carbon Zones’ will draw from recent work for the Welsh Government and West Wales Authorities to develop a definition, and route map for ZCZ in the Swansea Bay City region.

The unique event which focuses on the future of energy in the UK has an inspiring programme of speakers including two sessions with former MP and adventurer, Dan Byles, now Chair of Smarter UK, Clean Air Alliance, and Vice President of Corporate Development at Living Planit.

The topic of the day, Decentralised Energy, also referred to as distributed generation, can deliver clean, cheaper, more efficient energy for the UK, covering heat & electricity. The conference will explore the economic and societal benefits in adopting a decentralised energy model, along with challenges the industry faces in delivering it.

Held at the Cavendish Conference Venue in London on the 16th June, Chloe will take to the stage at 11.30. She will cover:

  • Objectives of the study – why zero carbon?
  • Definition of a ZCZ
  • Route map for establishing ZCZ
  • Potential ZCZ case studies

Ahead of the event, Chloe said:

“In a decentralised world, future cities will need to integrate different low/zero carbon, smart technologies. The ZCZ route map we developed for Welsh Government and the Welsh Authorities provides a clear method for identifying areas of opportunity and developing technologies to facilitate this integration. It also sets out practical steps to ensuring a pragmatic approach and the viability of the projects. A ZCZ enables the development of a web of zero/low carbon, smart technologies across a region providing decentralised electricity, heat and transport.”
