Heat accounts for nearly half of the UK's energy use and associated CO2 emissions. To meet the UK's target to cut 80% of greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, major cuts in heat-related emissions will be required alongside those in the power sector. This needs to be achieved in the context of rising costs, investment constraints and the need to deliver affordability to the customer.
To address this vital issue, the Energy Institute and the Combined Heat and Power Association are hosting the Heat Conference 2012 on Thursday 15 November at the Royal Society, London. The conference will debate:

We are delighted that Ed Davey MP, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, and John Gummer, President of the Climate Change Committee, will bonth be addressing the conference.
Other invited speakers include:
