CBx events provide cross-collaborative discussions, enabling members to gain inside knowledge and a unique understanding of how different sectors perceive barriers and solutions to specific energy performance issues. Each event includes drinks, refreshments and time to network with peers, thought leaders and prospective clients.

Our panel of industry experts will discuss the merits of the domestic RHI, as well as district heat networks and community low-carbon heating alongside some of their own experiences with the technology.

Patrick Allcorn, Head of Domestic RHI Policy at DECC will be giving a talk on the benefits of both the domestic and non-domestic RHI, including case studies of accredited installations showing possible financial returns and an update on latest policy developments. Speakers from UCL Energy Institute will be discussing options for decarbonising the mains gas supply (including biomethane and hydrogen), and considering how the gas system might change in the future as the UK develops a low-carbon economy. Presentations will cover UCL research about the history and future of UK heat networks (with a particular focus on resident and community participation), and an overview of some current modelling work themed around the area of smart systems and heat.

Renewable heat systems can be poorly designed, installed, commissioned – resulting in a potential heat return lower than the actual. Our panel will demonstrate how a better understanding of the lifecycle approach will yield much better returns.
