Come along to ECOE’s next event and find out more about renewable heat and heat networks - the innovative and far-reaching heat network plans for the Exeter District and about community energy and heat projects. ECOE has been investigating the feasibility of a heat project in Exeter and our experience is its certainly complex. We haven’t given up yet, as we have a few more possibilities and we’re eager to hear from Kathy and their successful biomass fuelled heat network and an up to date on government policy from Tim

Larger public authority heat network projects seem to be having more success than smaller community energy projects. Our speakers will talk about their varied experiences with heat projects to help our understanding regarding what projects are viable nowadays.

Howard Smith, from the Exeter City Council will provide an update about the Exeter City Heat Network project, and the role of Dextco in public sector collaboration.

Kathy Smyth, a director of the Springbok Sustainable Wood Heat Co-operative will talk about challenges and successes of their wood chip fuelled district heating system on the Springbok Estate near Alfold, Surrey.

Tim Crook from Regen SW, will give an update on government policy for renewable heat.

Gill Wyatt, chair of ECOE will share ECOE’s experiences in trying to find a site in Exeter.

Refreshments will be provided. The flyer is attached and there’s more info on our website
