New actors & alternatives on the heat market – Heat as a service

28 January 2022

10:00 - 12:00 CET Online

With Decarb City Pipes 2050, we organise monthly online capacity building sessions, to address specific issues related to the heating and cooling transition. These sessions are based on sharing of experience between peers, and invitation of key experts.

They are open mainly (but not only) to the members of the consortium, their utilities and the “sister cities” of the city partners (Innsbruck, Frankfurt-am-Main, Cork, St. Gallen, Den Hag and Dordrecht, Vitoria-Gasteiz).

This session will focus on heat as a service. Heating represents 50% of Europe’s final consumption and is at 75% fuelled by fossil fuels. This is thus a huge market that offers numerous perspectives in terms of decarbonisation. To achieve so, new alternatives and actors will be needed, to bring innovation and accelerate the transition. The goal of this session is to present some of these alternatives and discuss with cities the potential barriers and levers to implement such solutions.

Each presentation of 20-25 min will be followed by a Q&A session:

  • New alternative on the heat market: the SEAMS, Presentation by David Bourguignon (Association Les Énergiques) & Frédéric Adam (G-ON), examples by Nadège Vetterli (ANEX)
  • Trial of heat as a service in the UK, Presentation by Edmund Hunt, Energy Systems Catapult
