BEIS and Citizens Advice take centre stage at Gas 2019

22nd Oct 2019


There are just three weeks to go until the must attend event on the energy calendar; Gas 2019. Organised by the Energy and Utilities Alliance, EUA, the event, sponsored by DNV GL, Cadent, Wales and West Utilities, Northern Gas Networks, SGN, and National Grid takes place on the 12th of November, 2019 at the Jaguar Experience, Birmingham, with an optional Manufacturing tour of Jaguar on offer to all delegates afterwards.

Taking centre stage at Gas 2019, and with a focus on ensuring the consumer is central to heat decarbonisation, are; Richard Leyland, Deputy Director - Heat Programme, Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) and James Kerr, Senior Policy Advisor, Citizens Advice. 

Mike Foster, Chief Executive of EUA said; 

“We are delighted that both Citizens Advice and the government department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, BEIS, are presenting at Gas 2019. This year we have focused our annual gas event on the consumer. With around 15% of UK CO2 emissions coming from how people use heat and hot water at home, we must put the consumer at the heart of heat decarbonisation." 

“The biggest challenge in decarbonising heat is that many of the solutions proposed will require changes at a domestic level. Decarbonisation will have to be delivered in the least disruptive way possible and maintain the extremely high reliability that customers are used to.”
