As part of The Energy Institute’s lecture series Eunomia Senior Consultant Rob Reid will be discussing how to decarbonise heat on the evening of Tuesday 15th March.

Following his work on Eunomia’s recent evaluation of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) for the Department of Energy and Climate Change, Rob will take to the stage at Ashurst offices to ask the question, is it time for a radical rethink on addressing the challenge of decarbonising heat?

Ahead of the event, Rob said:

“In recent years, the UK Government has implemented policies such as the Green Deal and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) to reduce our dependence on natural gas to meet our heating needs. But decarbonising heat generation is hugely challenging and, despite these policy changes, we are still a long way off where we need to be in order to meet the EU Renewable Energy Directive (RED) target.”

Building on Eunomia’s full evaluation of the RHI, Rob will address ideas for new policy frameworks for developing low carbon heat and increasing energy efficiency in households and business settings.

Attendees will include those with a keen interest in the energy sector, so in the audience you can expect to see industry organisations, trade associations, consultancies, financiers, academics, legal firms, network operators, utility companies, local and central government and housing associations.

Attendance is free, and you can book here.
