Minister at ADE Conference

Minister for Climate Change at ADE / EI Heat and Decentralised Energy Conference.

Claire Perry MP, Minister of State for Climate Change and Industry, will give a keynote speech at Heat and Decentralised Energy 2017, in London on Thursday 30 November.

This one-day conference, hosted by the Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE) and the Energy Institute (EI), will explore the shift needed to achieve a competitive, cost effective low carbon energy system which places customers at its heart.

The new Clean Growth Strategy recognises that heat is the most difficult sector to decarbonise. The Strategy sets out actions for rolling out low carbon heating including ongoing support for heat networks and two new £10 million innovation programmes to develop new energy efficiency and heating technologies to enable lower cost, low carbon homes.

There will also be the chance to debate how leadership in industry, policy and customer engagement can help make the vision of the Clean Growth Strategy a reality. Alongside the Minister, speakers will include: Louise Kingham OBE FEI, Chief Executive Officer, Energy Institute; Tim Rotheray, Director, Association for Decentralised Energy; Sabine Froning, Managing Partner, Communication Works; Chris Kimmett, Commercial Director – Networks, Reactive Technologies; Kirsty Lambert, Business Development Director, Switch2; and, Alastair Martin, Chief Strategy Officer, Flexitricity

The Policy Debate will be chaired by John Moylan, former Industry and Employment Correspondent for the BBC. The Association for Decentralised Energy is also celebrating its 50thanniversary with a drinks reception.
