The University of St Andrews and Fife Council have set a target to reach net-zero by 2035. A series of projects have been initiated to achieve this. Heating has been defined as one of the prioritised areas. A feasibility study is currently underway assessing options and priorities to reach the net-zero objectives. This strategy addresses all key components of a decarbonisation plan: Conserve – Connect – Convert. Local building operators and other key stakeholders are involved in the process. There are also political initiatives underway in Scotland to further accelerate the decarbonisation process.
The overall aim of the session is to present status, plans and priorities in the net-zero process, and to facilitate exchange of best practice in terms of strategies and solutions to decarbonise heating in practice. We will also highlight initiatives underway to involve key stakeholders in the community, and to drive local capacity building.
Participants include representatives from:
• University of St Andrews – project team and decision makers
• Political institutions – local and regional
• Local building operators and other stakeholders
• Energy operators from across the UK, including Pinnacle, Vital, Veolia, SSE, and Vattenfall
• Suppliers of technologies and services
• Local student organisations
