Breakfast seminars turn up heat on new regulations and best practice in district energy

Winckworth Sherwood and community heat metering and billing specialist Switch2 Energy are hosting two free breakfast seminars in central London to explain latest regulations and best practice affecting community and district heat networks.

The first seminar on Monday 14 March will discuss how the new CIBSE Code of Regulations is shaping the design and implementation of the heating industry and will provide an update on the implications of the new Code of Practice for retrofit and new build. The seminar will also include a short update on the Heat Network Regulations.

Guest speaker Matthew Turner, Regional Director of Aecom, will speak on behalf of CIBSE alongside Ian Allan, Head of Research & Development for Switch2, and Colin Hall, Partner, Winckworth Sherwood

A seminar on Tuesday 26 April will provide an update on the new Heat Network Regulations and the soon to be launched feasibility tool, which enables heat suppliers to check if metering is viable on their scheme.

Guest speakers from the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the National Measurement & Regulation Office (NMRO) will join legal experts from Winckworth Sherwood and community heating experts from Switch2 to explain the operation and implications of the Heat Network (Metering & Billing) Regulations.

The new UK legislation stems from the European Union’s Energy Efficiency Directive, and affects every district and community heating scheme in the country. The seminar will update delegates on the timetable for compliance and recent changes to the regulations. NMRO will also explain their approach to enforcement.

This seminar is aimed at district and community heating suppliers, who will find out about the urgent steps they need to take to comply with the EU regulations and the metering and billing solutions that are available.

The free events, which are supported by the Housing Forum, will take place at Winckworth Sherwood’s office, close to London Bridge.
