Join us for this free online meeting and hear from a panel of experts. 



Reuse of waste heat generated in commercial and industrial processes will play a crucial role in decarbonising the UK's Heating and Cooling sector, which is currently responsible for around half of energy use and 1/3rd of overall carbon emissions.

The need for constant operation and strict temperature control requirements typically make data centres the perfect candidate for participation in Low-Temperature Heat Networks/Ambient Loops - the most efficient and versatile concept of district heating developed to date. With the right policymaking, support and education, there is potential for data centres to be integrated into communities and adopted as a valuable source of heat in cities.

The event will boost awareness and encourage data centre business owners and operators to take advantage of opportunities presented by the capture and reuse of waste heat energy. The expert panel will deliver presentations on topics closely relating to the subject area.
