University of Cambridge Decarbonisation Network


This multidisciplinary panel aims to address the technical and logistical challenges associated with the design of heat networks. Understanding planning laws is essential for integrating district energy networks within existing and future city infrastructures, ensuring minimal disruption and maximum efficiency. Furthermore, new heating systems must be consistent with the constraints associated with heritage buildings. Finally, the electrification of heat requires close alignment with the power network. Together, this panel will discuss comprehensive strategies to:

  • Optimise implementation of heat networks,
  • Balancing the needs of urban development,
  • Heritage protection, and energy reliability.
