Can you really trust your models? The role of heat networks in delivering 2050 carbon targets – free event

Start Date:29 Aug 12 

About the workshop
One of the greatest energy challenges we face as a society is the reduction of carbon dioxide emissions from heat supply. There is much focus on electricity generation, but electricity comprises less than 30% of our overall energy demand, significantly less than the heat demand (over 35%). Effective modelling of the cost of upgrading the waste heat for heat networks is essential. Current models generally ignore the dynamic nature of networks and marginal and locational effects and use fixed average CO2 emission factors without accounting for global variation. This workshop will explain the fundamentals of network modelling techniques and review existing models by way of comparison.

Through interaction between a range of experts and newcomers to the field, the workshop will catalyse thinking about UK policy on heat network infrastructure as the flexible backbone for sustainable heating in urban areas. It should demonstrate that heat networks with CHP can be a relatively benign way to stimulate our economy and meet our 2050 targets.
