Heat Networks: The Road to Commercialisation

Monday 4th February 2019 - London

Choosing a commercial structure for your heat network can feel daunting. How do you evaluate the different commercial structures to make sure you get the best fit for your organisation and your network? How do you strike a balance between risk, complexity and the cost of capital?

The UK District Energy Vanguards Network is hosting a free one-day workshop in London on Monday 4th February 2019 that will help local authorities to consider these questions and other aspects of choosing commercial structures for heat network projects. Whether you’re completing a feasibility study or working through the business case for your network, this session can help you to consider the options that are available and the financing and procurement opportunities associated with them.

The day will comprise:

  • 9.15am - Site Visit: Somers Town heat network, hosted by Camden Council (the site visit is currently fully booked. If you would like to join the waiting list, please email liz.warren@se-2.co.uk.)

  • 10.00am - Arrivals and refreshments

  • 10.30am - The Road to Commercialisation: workshop begins. We'll be working through a process exploring objectives and constraints, different business models and structures, a methodology for comparing different approaches, and the finance and procurement options that you might consider. It promises to be a full and rich day!

  • 4.30pm - Workshop concludes

  • 5.00pm - Stay with us for drinks!

The day promises to be interactive and engaging, with discussions, debate and the opportunity to network with local authority peers and learn from your collective experience. The event has been made possible by our lead sponsor SSE and our further sponsors Logstor, SWEP and Switch2.

You can register your place using the green Register button towards the top right of this screen.

The event is free to attend for local authorities and other public sector organisations. If you are representing a commercial organisation and wish to attend, you will need to provide written authorisation that you are attending on behalf of a public sector organisation.
