Following on from the great success of the DEKB Conference last year in Leicester which incorporated a visit to the Leicester District Energy Scheme, DEKB and its sponsors are pleased to announce this year’s conference - “Tapping into Local Energy Sources”.

Following the recent GLA report into Secondary Heat Sources this conference will focus on the methods and ways to tap into existing thermal energy sources in your own area, i.e. waste heat from industry and other local heat sources. With an increasing focus on the delivering district energy networks with ever lower carbon intensities, the search for renewable and very low carbon energy sources which exist within that urban area is becoming increasingly important.

This year’s conference in Coventry will enable delegates to hear from speakers on this topic and visit the UK’s latest district energy scheme which uses an innovative “heat shipping” concept as a UK first, to transport waste heat from a mile outside of the City Centre to heat Civic buildings and the Cathedral, as initial consumers, in the heart of the City Centre.

Through a targeted approach, the conference will provide one-to-one advice and support. Together with plenty of time for questions, this will provide the ideal platform for Public and Private sector organisations to interact with a range of the UK’s leading industry experts, offering a specific knowledge which is essential to delivering Decentralised Energy projects in the UK.

The UK District Energy Association
.
.
.
.
The partners, owners and operators of the largest district energy schemes in the UK have aligned themselves in the creation of the UK District Energy Association (ukDEA); with the aim of not only promoting district energy as a means to deliver significant carbon savings, but also to establish a direct link between the Government and the industry's small market base.
The benefits to full and associated members include:
.
Providing Guidance, Information and Best Practice - The ukDEA brings together the UKDEA's developers, operators and partners of the largest district energy schemes in the UK, each seen as an example of Best Practice with multiple awards across the various members ranging from Queens Awards for specific schemes to Local Authority Council Employee of the Year in the Green Category for individuals. One of the core values on which the association has been formed is that of assisting and guiding other organisations in the development of their schemes. Therefore by becoming a member you can link into that network of experience, expertise and Best Practice.
.
Engaging with DECC, Central Government and Driving Energy Policy - The founding members of the ukDEA are each respected in their own rights as leading practitioners of district energy and each regularly meets with DECC and other central government departments. Together they are seen as the true voice of district energy in the UK equally representing both the public and the private sector. Representatives of the ukDEA have already been instrumental in contributing to the formation of the government's proposed Heat Markets Forum. By joining the association you will join this single conversation with DECC and other central government bodies on this ever increasingly important but complex subject.
.
International Links - Through its developing links with District Energy Associations in countries across the World the ukDEA will analyse and disseminate to its members commercial concepts and new technologies which can be brought into the UK market to enhance their existing and new schemes.
The ukDEA are not technology specific and indeed are agnostic on this subject. They are not for example pro gas fired CHP verses heat from energy from waste. They simply advocate the construction of local energy networks using technologies and solutions which are appropriate in terms of carbon intensity and costs to end users. These could range from heat only networks to heat, electricity and chilled water as practiced by some of our members. Each one has its own part to play in the solutions they need to develop to deliver a truly low carbon economy.
