Understanding District Heating and Heat Networks

RTPI Scotland Young Planners Event

Tuesday, 19 September 2017 at 5:45PM
Edinburgh Central Library, George IV Bridge, Edinburgh EH1 1EG
RTPI Scotland

This event will give you the opportunity to learn more about this increasingly important subject area.

Heat networks and district heating systems can help reduce carbon and greenhouse gas emissions and decrease our reliance on carbon-based energy. It is therefore important that opportunities for heat networks and district heating are fully explored through new development.

This event will give you the opportunity to learn from experienced policy-makers and practitioners in this field.

Our speakers are:

Ailie Callan, Senior Planning Officer for District Heating and Heat Networks at SEPA, explaining what planners and the planning system can do to deliver district heating.

Hugh Muschamp, Programme Manager at Resource Efficient Solutions LLP, discussing district heating as part of the energy plans for Fife, and use of national data such as Scotland’s Heat Map.

David Dunne, Senior Planner at Aberdeen City Council, discussing his involvement in the Scottish Cities Alliance District Heating Project

Dave Pearson, Director at Star Renewable Energy, discussing his company’s involvement in district heating projects in the Glasgow Gorbals and Drammen, Norway.
