Heat and Energy Efficiency Zoning: A Framework for Net Zero


Join us the ADE and UK Power Networks as they launch of the ADE's new paper: Heat and Energy Efficiency Zoning – A framework for decarbonisation to net zero for domestic and non-domestic buildings. This paper explores the localness of heat and energy efficiency, and seeks to provide a pathway for getting moving on heat decarbonisation in the absence of certainty about innovating and commercialising technologies. The proposals would see heat and energy efficiency policy decided at a national level but targeted and directed at a local level through zoning. and represents the UK's first proposed comprehensive policy framework for a patchwork approach to heat decarbonisation.

We are delighted to be partnering with UK Power Networks to host this event, as they launch their innovative "Heat Street: Local System Planning" project. Heat Street is an industry first project that will identify zones to help communities and industry target their efforts and map out their net zero carbon future. The project follows UK Power Networks’ flagship launch of its Heat Strategy in March 2020.

You will come away with a thorough understanding of the policy retrograp and gain insights into the importance of zoning for heat decarbonisation and reaching net zero.

Presenting their work on zoning will be:

  • Charlotte Owen: Heat Policy Manager, The Association for Decentralised Energy
  • Zain Habib: Innovation Programme Delivery Manager, UK Power Networks
  • Rona Mitchell: Innovation Project Lead, UK Power Networks

We will then be joined by a number of industry experts for a panel discussion, including:

  • Sheryl French: Project Director - Mobilising Local Energy Investment, Cambridgeshire County Council
  • Charlotte Hartley: Scottish Just Transition Commission and Trustee with the 2050 Climate Group
  • Polly Billington: Director, UK100
