Heat Pumps and Demand Side Management:
Collaboration and Opportunities for Smart Grid Integration
Thursday 7 November 2018 10am to 4pm
The Building Centre, 26 Store Street, London WC1E 7BT

This one day seminar aims to build industry collaboration as conditions for significant heat pump uptake improve.

Gathering both the heat pump industry, manufacturers and installers, and the electricity supply sector will enhance the understanding between demand and supply. Presentations will seek to reassure generators and distributors that the heat pump sector knows how to minimise its impact on the grid. We will give the supply industry the opportunity to set out its requirements to manage the loads, whilst simultaneously accommodating the demand for extensive electric vehicle charging.

Smart heat pump controls and grid connection optimisation have the potential to reduce peak loads and to contribute to the complexities of grid balancing in an increasingly electrical future.

Contributions will come from the Energy Network Association, who will explain the new "Connect & Notify" initiatives, and from both the heat pump industry and the electricity supply chain.

We will hear from those looking to build the Smart grid and controls environment that will carry heat pump deployment through the next decade and deliver reduced carbon emissions, contribute to meeting Carbon Budgets and air-quality improvement.

The seminar is aimed at DNOs and the electricity supply chain, heat pump manufacturers & distributors, heat pump installers, third party controls specialists, and those with an interest in Smart Grids and the potential for Demand Side Management and Demand Side Response in relation to heat pumps.

The event, which starts at 10am and finishes at 4pm, is free to all delegates and includes light refreshments and lunch.

Numbers are limited, so please do book now to secure your place.

We look forward to seeing you there.
