The Danish Embassy in the UK is hosting a seminar to offer insights into what the renewable heat industry can expect in 2015 and the future plans for heat networks in Manchester, as part of The Liveable City series of events from 20-27 November.

The Liveable City, a celebration of architecture and urban planning in Manchester, explores how planners, architects and local communities can play their part in the development of dynamic, liveable cities.

It is being hosted by the Danish Embassy in the UK, in cooperation with the Manchester School of Architecture, the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) North West, and other local partners.

On Wednesday 26 November, experts in the field will host a seminar on the important role to be played by heat networks in delivering sustainable cities. 

Heat networks

Growing Heat Networks will offer insights to what can be expected in 2015 and beyond in terms of policy developments and investments in heat networks, and showcase the future plans for heat networks in Manchester.

The event aims to bring together policy makers, opinion leaders, energy consumers and the combined heat and power (CHP) industry to stimulate debate and highlights political perspectives and industry insights.

Speakers will include Guy Boulby, director of heat networks at the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC), Jonathan Sadler, environmental strategy manager at Manchester City Council, Dr Anthony Riddle, associate director of  Rambøll, and Anders Hasselager, senior policy advisor at the Danish Energy Agency.

The event will be held at the Benzie Building at Manchester Metropolitan University from 9:30 to 13:00. There will also be an opportunity after the seminar to join a site visit to MediaCity's district heating network.
