Synopsis

SCI Energy Group's first major conference reflects the critical importance of reducing CO₂ emissions from the way we heat our homes for achieving the UK's target of an 80% reduction in CO₂ emissions by 2050. This conference will explore available and emerging technologies to deliver lowcarbon energy to buildings, comfort to occupants and energy savings.

The programme will include speakers on developments in heat pumps, smart systems, district heating and hydrogen, and the impact of decarbonisation on infrastructure. Speakers will also address the barriers to uptake and the social impact of options to reduce CO₂ emissions from heating. Reflecting SCI's approach to resolving the energy trilemma, we want to address the reliability, affordability and sustainability of solutions.


Attendees

The event is intended to broker links between science and industry, with a target audience of engineers, business and commercial managers, policy managers, academics in the field, R&D managers, marketing and business development managers, technical and operations managers, and investment decision makers.
