ECOBUILD 2017 LAUNCHES DISTRICT


ENERGY TOWN SQUARE Ecobuild has announced an exclusive strategic partnership with UK District Energy Association (ukDEA) to present the ukDEA District Energy Town Square at next year’s exhibition at ExCeL, London. The Town Square will also host international pavilions from Sweden and Denmark, two of the most mature district energy markets in the world.


The ukDEA District Energy Town Square will act as a focal point for visitors who want to learn about the advantages of local heating and cooling networks. Reflecting growing interest in the sector, the area dedicated to district energy has grown significantly, from 180m2 2016 to 1,400m2


at Ecobuild at the 2017 show.


Exhibitors in the ukDEA District Energy Town Square will showcase the latest technology and systems, while a dedicated seminar theatre will host 36 informative sessions, sharing case studies, business models and best practice from the UK, Scandinavia, and further afield. Each day will focus on a different sector:


local authorities; universities and campus-style networks; and private and public sector housing developers. Also new for 2017, the ukDEA lounge will provide a relaxed networking environment for visitors to interact with the 100+ district energy experts present at the show each day.


The ukDEA District Energy Town Square will be located directly off Regeneration Drive, the main thoroughfare running through Ecobuild 2017, as the exhibition adopts a city-style layout to deliver a thought-provoking and interactive experience for visitors.


Simon Woodward, Chairman of ukDEA, said: “In today’s planning and regulatory environment it is almost impossible to develop a housing or commercial scheme in the UK without consideration being given to a district energy network. The


ukDEA District Energy Town Square will demonstrate how it is possible to comply with planning stipulations and tap into sources of funding and deliver a scheme that makes good business sense.”


Martin Hurn, Brand Director at Ecobuild said: “The purpose of this year’s show is to help redefine sustainability for the industry, and district energy is an initiative with real potential to have a lasting impact on the UK environment. We’re excited to work with the ukDEA and experts from Sweden and Denmark to educate built environment professionals on the district energy opportunity. The list of confirmed exhibitors is growing almost daily, which really demonstrates the current levels of interest in the sector.”
