SIRACH to host smart energy event

Climate change is a hot topic and many governments now view greenhouse gas emission reduction as a priority, which is why SIRACH will soon be holding an event on a solution with the potential to address this matter.

According to the European Commission, 84 percent of heating and cooling is still generated from fossil fuels, which has prompted many states to set ambitious targets including a significant focus on decarbonising the grid, thus increasing the requirement for renewable energy for heating and cooling.

In light of this, the SIRACH Network is holding a meeting on Smart Energy Networks of the Future which deliver low carbon, affordable energy to local communities by connecting flexible electricity demands such as heat pumps to intermittent renewable energy sources such as solar power.

The use of district heat networks varies widely between different countries and across the world with key differences in technologies and implementation.

The workshop will share knowledge on the development, challenges, and opportunities of smart energy networks, with highlights including a presentation by Bob Critoph of LoTot-Net on why low temperature networks will be important in the future, and a feasibility study of a fifth generation district heating and cooling integrated smart energy network in London by Islington Council.
