Event Details

THE CLIMATE EMERGENCY means we need to find new ways of doing things, to reduce our impact on the planet. Join us to hear from Ben Carter of Vattenfall to hear about the work they are doing to decarbonise energy systems, and especially the work they are involved in developing a city scale heat network for Edinburgh. There will be time for discussion about Net Zero and for questions too.

Ben will talk about city-scale district heating. This is interesting as it is based on securing lots of abundant local zero carbon energy sources, it replaces gas and can help reduce the cost of living. He will focus on the vision they have developed for a city scale heat network in Edinburgh and talk about where district heating works best and where it doesn’t.

Biography: Ben Carter enjoys delivering on Vattenfall’s vision of a city scale heat network for Edinburgh. He works with a broad range of public, corporate and community stakeholders to understand their journey to zero carbon and how Vattenfall can be their number one decarbonisation partner. He has been in the renewable heating sector since 2010, moving into energy from waste in 2015 and focussing on building decarbonisation and district heating since 2016.  Before moving into renewables Ben spent the better part of a decade in beautiful Mexico, in brand licensing and marketing.
