Now it's time for our first panel discussion ' The future of flexibility is now' with Alex Gilbert @TfL and Joe McDonald @Limejump, Rafiek Versmissen @DNVGL_Energy and Andy McKay @power_evergreen #Smart19
Joe discussing the current UK energy mix, and how a #virtualpowerplant can help in #decarbonisation of the UK. @Limejump #Smart19 Image
Now Rafiek on unlocking value of #flexibility for networks. It's very much situational, an ongoing assessment, that gives DNOs options for the temporary needs of the system vs long term assets. Flexibility only has viability if it's reliable and cost effective.
@DNVGL #Smart19 Image
Now Andy Mckay of @power_evergreen asks us to think of the local grid, & the potential for #ElectricVehicles to provide #flexibility. "We've made progress on #decarbonising, but it's intermittent. How can #v2g help? Currently Consumers are part of a system they don't understand." ImageImage

An excellent session led by Andy Parker @officialcalor on 'Decarbonising heat in off gas grid rural homes'. The theme of #HeatDE20 is 'Levelling up with local energy' and this session was packed full of excellent insights
Rob Honeyman from @Ecuity_UK points out that support for multiple technologies will deliver decarbonisation of rural off gas grid houses at lower cost
Peter Smith from
@NEA_UKCharity agrees there are 'no silver bullets' for rural household heating. Do we hear an echo?! Yes we do! An excellent and shared message cropping up in many sessions at #HeatDE20 Thanks, @peterwsmith101 💪

Charlotte Owen is leading a convo on 'Right thing, right place: Delivering regionally' #HeatDE20 and has shared that from a poll of a whopping 140 industry members, *89%* agree we need a 'Centralised policy framework that requires local authorities to undertake zoning over time'
Keith Owen at @NGNgas is emphasising the importance of close collaboration with local authorities and local stakeholders. It's important to consider scale- this is essential to ensure neighbouring LA's can provide an excellent service #HeatDE20
Matthew Billson @beisgovuk says: we don't think there is a silver bullet for reaching net zero, we must look at all the technologies. Including many decentralised technologies, our department has a very large portfolio!

Our #HeatDE20 session on activating householders and engaging the disengaged is now in full swing, with @drobsoninsta of @WeAreInstaGroup currently speaking on the opportunities brought about by the green homes grant 💡
@ClemCowton from @octopus_energy speaks about their breadth of xp engaging the customer. Take the brilliant… which brought forward 8k meter readings on 🎄🧑‍🎄. If you build something that is intuitive and engaging- they will come!
.@drobsoninsta from @WeAreInstaGroup reflects on being involved in Gov energy efficiency schemes for a decade+: We need to learn from previous experience but also look at innovative ways of engaging with consumers- they want to engage in different ways than they did 10 years ago!

🔊Hear Hear! 🔊 As the @theCCCuk says - The number 1 #GreenRecovery priority for Government must be backing a national buildings renovation programme:
Better buildings will create a whopping 50k real quantifiable green-collar jobs in the next two years and ~200k by 2050, as shown by @eeiguk and
Better buildings will predominantly create jobs outside of the South-East – putting decarbonisation to work to level up our regions, as @ECIU_UK have found…

Improving the #energyefficiency of buildings is fundamentally about both today and the future. Here are 5 reasons we think building retrofit should form a key part of the #GreenRecovery:
1)It's an infrastructure project that can start now and will span decades, providing sustained employment opportunities across the UK and building a skilled, green workforce. @VividEconomics/@wwf_uk research found that 85,000 direct jobs are created to 2030 through green retrofit
2)It enables exciting new, low carbon heating options, such as heat networks that utilise waste heat from the underground or abandoned coal mines. These innovative solutions are vital to the future of heat decarbonisation and are not viable in cold and draughty buildings.
