Heat 2014 - Lean Heat: Moving to a more efficient heat energy economy

The Combined Heat and Power Association and Energy Institutes' annual Heat conference.

Heat 2014 takes place at an important point in the political cycle, as the energy sector responds to the European elections, looks at the implications of the Scottish referendum and plans for the General Election in 2015. Energy is a centrepiece of the debate at all levels of policymaking, particularly issues related to cost and security of supply.


Accounting for around half of our energy use, the challenge of meeting our need for heat in a cost effective way has placed a renewed focus on efficiency. From homes to industry, how can we cut waste from the UK's heat needs to manage costs and improve security of supply whilst still meeting our emissions commitments?

Lean heat is the theme of this year's conference. We will look at the policies needed to move to a more efficient heat energy economy and inspiring examples of how policy is being translated into practice.

Join us at Heat 2014 to debate:
How we can secure efficient investment to keep down users' costs
How we can better understand the user's needs to improve system design
What action is needed – from local to European level – to enable lean heat to be a reality for businesses and householders
