Heat policy - what's needed to achieve the heat ambitions in the Resources and Waste Strategy?

04 March 2020 14:50 - 15:30

The drive to carbon zero by 2050 has to solve heating.  What's the role for waste to energy and its heat production? Is it possible to de-risk partnerships sufficiently and what policies are needed from government to achieve this? 
This session considers current policies and explores the directions emerging from the Policy Connect research into the energy from waste industry and its heat potential.
