H&V News Summit 2019 – The Future of HVAC
3rd October 2019 | Bloomsbury Hotel, London
9.00 – 16.40
The H&V Summit 2019 will be bringing together experts from across the supply chain to debate the major themes in the industry today. Make sure you don’t miss out on the opportunity to take part in a high-level strategic debate on the state of the industry and discuss the critical issues that today’s HVAC sector faces.
Will heating be fuelled by hydrogen or electricity in future? What will connectivity and Big Data mean for the sector? How do the major contractors and clients see future challenges?
Share experiences, discuss opportunities and learn key strategies to position your business as a leading organisation within the sector.
Managing Director, Kensa Contracting, Dr Matthew Trewhella will present Innovation in Action: The Heat Pump Revolution – Is it Bye-Bye to the Boiler?
Although the use of heat pumps is well established across Europe, the US and Canada as a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly option, the UK is still the biggest gas boiler market in Europe (with 1.5 million gas boilers being installed each year), so why is the UK so slow to pick up on the potential of heat pumps? Among the different factors that complicate the expansion of heat pumps in the UK, are the high upfront costs, the low running costs savings and an inadequate distribution network. So what needs to change for heat pumps to play their part in future UK heating market?

The HVAC sector is facing a time of real upheaval, arguably unprecedented in recent years, with legislation, political uncertainty and technology advances all having an impact on what the industry does: from Building Regs to a veritable Boiler revolution (not to mention Brexit and its aftermath).
With all these issues at stake, it is essential for the industry to remain informed. The Future of HVAC will reflect the approach of H&V News in looking at the industry issues ‘in the round’, from policy to technology to best practice.
