Heat high on the agenda at All-Energy 2016

At the 2016 All-Energy exhibition and conference, held on 4-5 May, heat is to be a major theme with a dedicated “heat zone” at the exhibition, and “literally hours of conference time”.

Over five hours of the conference is devoted to heat with a scene setting and policy session; a session on technology and innovation (including district heating, water source heat pumps, and air source heat pumps); and another on models and finance. A 90-minute geothermal conference session is also scheduled.

Jonathan Heastie, Event Director, All-Energy, said:“We know how important achieving a resilient heat system is to the Scottish Government, and certainly exhibitors and speakers are showing determination to achieve an affordable low carbon heat system for households, organisations and industry; and are eager to seize the economic opportunities that this transformation offers.

“Our new heat zone in the exhibition has attracted nearly 30 exhibiting organisations; and others are elsewhere in the exhibition, and all easily found thanks to our ‘Heat Visitor Trail’. These trails, accessible in via our website or App, aim to easily link exhibitors and visitors.

“One of the most eye-catching of exhibits on the exhibition show floor will be what is believed to be the largest UK 65C air source heatpump, measuring over 8m long, and being exhibited by Scottish-based Star Renewable Energy, with WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff and Scottish Gas. It will produce enough heat for 350 flats whilst warm enough to allow radiators to be used – you can hear about it in the free-to-attend conference as well.”

The event is being held at Glasgow’s SECC on 4 and 5 May and will feature a networking evening at the Glasgow Science Centre.
