Ireland currently ranks as one of the lowest countries in Europe for generating renewable heat, and yet there is currently enough excess heat in Ireland to meet more than 30% of our heating demands, and this figure is growing with increased industrial activity. We know that district heating is the only practical way of making use of this indigenous resource and offers a viable, low-carbon solution to Ireland’s heating sector.
In order for district heating schemes to become widespread, the involvement of Public Sector bodies is crucial, but they need to know where to start in implementing a district heating scheme and the key planning, financial and technological considerations they must take into account.
This webinar is therefore a must for all public sector staff working in areas such as planning, architecture, climate change, engineering, facilities management, finance and procurement, as it will explain the benefits and opportunities in developing district heating schemes, detail the current scenario in Ireland in terms of policy and legislation, and explore the current challenges that we need to overcome to make district heating a mainstream, low-carbon heating solution for our homes and businesses.
It is also a great opportunity for those working in the energy, commercial and construction sectors to gain an insight into the emerging district heating market in Ireland and to gain an understanding of the role they might play in future public or public-private schemes.
