Low carbon heat briefing

UK: The SIRACH network is hosting a half-day briefing at London’s iconic Shard to share the findings of the Lot-Net project. 

A UKRI-funded programme, LoT-NET investigates how waste heat streams from industrial or other sources feeding into low-temperature heat networks can combine with renewable energy, thermal storage and optimal heat pump technologies to meet the heating and cooling needs of buildings and industrial processes.

This free event on 16 April will delve into cutting-edge strategies and technologies crucial for the successful implementation of low-carbon heat networks and will serve as a pivotal platform to disseminate its findings. 

Attendees will gain insights into diverse perspectives, including a user’s outlook on recoverable heat and the practical use of the project’s outcomes within the industry.

The agenda also includes discussions on the future trajectory of heat network technologies with a focus on thermal energy storage advancements in the UK, the evolution of advanced air source heat pumps (ASHPs) in both European and British domestic markets, and LotNet case studies spotlighting heat network delivery.
