Following the success of the previous Building Services Forum (BSF), the one-day event is back this year and will be held at the Chelsea Harbour Hotel in London on October 5. But time is running out to book tickets so head over to https://bseeforum.co.uk/tickets to secure your place now.
Focused on low carbon heating solutions, the BSF offers an opportunity for visitors to ask the all-important questions about the most familiar technologies, and where they fit in on the path to decarbonising heating.
Widely acknowledged as one of the biggest sources of carbon emissions, heating is on the UK government’s agenda as it strives to achieve a target of Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
Although the UK government has recently changed its approach to Net Zero, Prime Minister Rishi Sunak assured the country on September 20 that its commitment to 2050 has not changed.
Industry experts know the job to decarbonise heating is immense, and that we will have to embrace all products and technologies with carbon cutting credentials, if we are to have any hope of reaching this ambitious goal.
Regulation is set to impact heavily on heating in the coming months and years, and collectively manufacturers, installers and all involved in building services must be ready for what’s to come.
As a low carbon heating extravaganza, the Building Services Forum offers an equal platform to experts in the sector to showcase their innovations and opens a dialogue between all invested parties .
So, what can you expect?
Visitors can learn more about all the technologies they are already familiar with while high-profile speakers will also be able provide insight into some of the newest and most innovative products within the field.
Whether you’re interested in heat pumps, district heating/heat networks, biofuels, solar thermal or any other form of low carbon heating technology, the Building Services Forum is the place to be.
You can also network with professionals across the building services sector, and visit the speaker table tops for one-on-one discussions over a buffet lunch.
Datateam Business Media business director Jacqui Henderson said: “We are very excited about the return of the Building Services Forum. Reducing carbon emissions from buildings will require a major focus on heating and this is an opportunity to put low carbon solutions right in the spotlight.”
“We look forward to welcoming industry professional from across the building services sector for what promises to be an informative and thought-provoking event.”
Stuart Foy, Hoval regional sales manager
Talk: A realistic approach to carbon neutral solutions
Stuart will challenge the conventional view of renewable solutions and aims to enlighten the audience into the benefits of hybrid and multi component renewable solutions.
Samira Saravi – hydronics product manager, Mitsubishi Electric
Talk: The Road to Net Zero – Commercial Heat Pumps in the Built Environment.
Taking a closer look at the solutions as we move towards Net Zero, Samira will outline how there is a heat pump for virtually every commercial application, looking at specific types of heat pump and the applications they are best suited to.
Bill Sinclair, technical director, Adveco
Talk: The Return of Solar Thermal – Proven, Viable Low Carbon Commercial Hot Water
Bill explores the complicated and expensive options available to commercial new build and refurbishment when it comes to meeting the demands for hot water in a sustainable manner in line with Net Zero strategies. He examines why solar thermal fell out of favour, and why it is now being re-evaluated as an immediate response for reduction of carbon and costs. Bill will consider and compare the application of heat pumps and solar PV versus as well as in use alongside solar thermal. He will also address how protective technology dispels long held concerns relating to system overheating.
Adrian Polak, EndoTherm product manager at Endo Enterprises
Talk: EndoTherm & EndoCool – Energy & Carbon Saving Additives for HVAC Systems
Adrian will explain how these multi-award-winning energy saving additives for wet heating & cooling systems work. These are proven to save up to 15% on heating & cooling costs as well as delivering significant energy savings & substantial reduction of carbon emissions. When dosed at a 1% concentration of system volume in wet heating & cooling systems, EndoTherm & EndoCool work by changing the physical & thermal properties of water to improve the water’s responsiveness & heat transfer to improve the energy efficiency & performance of HVAC systems.
Neil Parry, global head of district energy, Armstrong Fluid Technology
Talk: Why District Energy? Drivers for growth and optimising efficiency
Neil looks at the benefits of district energy and it is an important method of reducing carbon emissions. He also explains how to ensure optimised efficiency in heat networks and discusses the potential incoming UK legislation on Zoning.
Val Belz, Specification Engineer, Panasonic
Talk: Decarbonising for a greener future
In this presentation, Val takes a deep dive into the drive towards low GWP refrigerant use within Panasonic and the HVAC industry, and the equipment to consider when selecting alternative refrigerants now and in the future for both residential and commercial applications. In addition, the team will explore other technologies such as PV technology and Fuel Cells that could be considered by design engineers, manufactures, contractors and end users.
Gary Bareham, CPA Solutions
Talk: The future of indoor air management
Gary will discuss how the CPA Group’s Enershied Air Barriers can help customers overcome challenges related to energy efficiency, indoor air quality and stable internal temperature regardless of conditions. He will show how the technology can be used to effectively reduce heating and cooling bills in commercial buildings.
