21st April, 2022 – 10.00 – 12.00 (UK Time) (Webinar)

Building Efficiency Retrofit – Session 1

Digital Technologies to reduce heating costs and increase energy security

At this session we will highlight digital technologies offering new and cost-effective opportunities for reducing energy consumption in buildings. There is a range of technologies which can be retrofitted at scale in any type of building. What are these solutions, how effective are they, where should we start and what does it take to implement them? This is the first in a series of three session at which we will address these questions.

The Agenda includes the following topics (further details in attachment)

  • Reality check – Building Efficiency – potential, priorities and ongoing projects in Stoke-on-Trent
  • Solutions – Digital technologies and strategies reducing the need for heat
  • Local Capacity Building – training centre and business hub in the Staffordshire region

Conserve & Connect – Recap of recent sessions

Building Efficiency and Network Asset Management

At this session we will make a review of technologies and best practice and for making buildings ready to connect, and for maximising performance and life span of heat networks.

The Agenda includes the following topics

  • Course – The steps to net-zero heating – Conserve, Connect, Convert
  • Conserve – Building efficiency – where and how to start
  • Connect – How to maximise reliability, performance and life expectancy of networks
  • Copy-Paste – Best practice in Sweden for maximising performance and life time of networks

No Time to Waste – Helsingborg (Onsite)

Expert Seminar in connection to H22 City Expo

Helsingborg is well underway on the journey towards net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2035. Recycled energy, captured and distributed through district heating and cooling networks, combined with enhanced building efficiency, are critical components in making this possible. The drive towards fossil free heat has recently been reinforced by the emerging energy crisis.

This seminar is a must for professionals engaged in developing sustainable cities – political decision makers, city planners, developers, suppliers of technologies and services, universities & colleges as well as investors and financial institutions. The seminar will offer plenty of opportunities for networking activities, a string of highly focused, know-how workshops after lunch followed by dinner later in the evening. And don’t miss the study visit at the Filborna EfW plant, one of the world’s most efficient of its kind

The session involves a range of very senior speakers representing a range of key stakeholder groups in the city. Among others you will meet:

Peter Danielsson, Chairman of the Municipal Board, City of Helsingborg

Ulf Molén, CEO, NSR AB
Ulf Thysell, CEO, NSVA AV

Anders Östlund, CEO, Öresundskraft

Peter Kihlgren, CEO, Kemira AB

…as well as several other professionals representing various sectors in the city – e.g., industry, contractors and real estate companies –§ actively involved in driving the sustainability agenda.

There will also be representatives from various cities across the globe, with which Helsingborg has established collaboration and exchange of best practice with the aim of speeding up the work of driving sustainable city development in general, and decarbonising heating in particular – New York, Rotterdam, St Andrews, Hamilton and Stoke-on-Trent which will be represented by Councillor Carl Edwards and Andrew Briggs.

You will find more details in the attachment.

The session is offered free-of-charge. There will a limited number of seats available. Please register as soon as you can through the following link:
