Speakers in the Elemental conference at the Installer show in June will home in on low-carbon heating in social housing sector

The elemental content theatres running alongside the InstallerSHOW at the NEC Birmingham on 21-23 June, will be tackling the cocktail of challenges facing developers of social housing and social landlords, from soaring energy costs to the demands of decarbonising en route to net zero.

The three-day elemental conference is designed for an audience of social housing and built environment professionals, and promises to feature thought-provoking discussion the organisers say, and an opportunity to learn about the key issues facing the industry when it comes to energy and heat.  H&V News is a partner with the elemental conference, as it aligns with our mission to help inform and equip the industry for its lower-carbon future.

Among the confirmed speakers so far are environmental campaigner Jonathon Porritt, who will be delivering the keynote address on 22 June. Attendees will also hear from experts from developers and social housing clients including Wates Group, Cheltenham Borough Council, Birmingham City Council and Genesis Housing. There will also be a series of seminars and panel discussions run by manufacturers’ body BEAMA, with topics to include making heating systems fit for the future and how high-tech housing can work.

Some of the highlights of the conference programme include how big data can help to achieve an energy-efficient retrofit; what the changes to Building Regs and the Future Homes Standard will mean for social housing; and a session on what housing associations and local authorities need to know about local energy generation.

The exhibitors at the InstallerSHOW will also focus on low carbon technology, including in the Wates Innovation Zone. The organisers say this area will feature ‘exclusive product demos from a host of extensively vetted suppliers who can offer genuine, market-leading sustainable technology to help in the design, construction, maintenance and use of buildings.’
