DECC CHP Outreach Workshops

CHP Outreach Workshops (Reducing Energy Costs with Combined Heat & Power). 16 January 2014, Aston University, Birmingham.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change is running free to attend one-day workshops in 2014 to raise awareness and knowledge of CHP. The events will  highlight the advantages of CHP heat linking and heat networks in supplying heat loads beyond the CHP site boundary.

Tony McDermott, Head of UK Business Development for ENER-G Combined Power, will join the expert panel of speakers for the Birmingham event. He will present case study examples of how CHP is being used across public buildings to reduce energy costs and carbon dioxide emissions.

Other speakers include: Mahmoud Abu-Ebid, CHPQA Programme Director, other members of the programme team from Ricardo-AEA and BRE, and Stephen Brooks from the DECC Heat Network Delivery Unit.
