ABOUT THIS EVENT:
Meeting the UK’s climate change targets will undeniably require the decarbonisation of our homes and buildings. The publication of the Heat and Buildings Strategy emphasised the key role heat networks will play in achieving this. There is a significant opportunity for responsible, private capital to step into this space to join up with public investment and deliver carbon savings, environmental benefits and social impact across communities in England and Wales.
The BEIS Heat Investment Vehicle (BHIVE) allows public sector heat network owners/developers in England and Wales to procure funding and funding-related services for their heat network projects from a range of potential funders.
Place-based impact investing can deliver both financial returns and address wider societal challenges.
Agenda (subject to change):
• Overview of the heat network market and expected changes
• Understanding the low carbon policy environment
• Place-based investing – what is it and why should you get involved
• Access opportunities via BHIVE
