Entering the Time Machine: A Glimpse of our Future
10:45 - 12:00
In a rapidly changing world, the only future certainty in the energy business is uncertainty! This will apply to DHC as much as any other industry, maybe more so. So buckle up as we set the dial in our time machine to 2050, and see what the future has in store for you and your business – assuming it still exists! Leaders and innovators from inside and out of the business will reflect on the coming changes, challenges and opportunities that will shape and define our common future.</br> <br>View the session description <strong><a href="https://www.ehpcongress.org/190507-1045/" target="popup" onclick="window.open('https://www.ehpcongress.org/190507-1045/','popup','width=600,height=600'); return false;">HERE</a></strong></br> <br>Moderator: <a href="https://www.ehpcongress.org/philippa-nuttall-jones-foresight/" target="popup" onclick="window.open('https://www.ehpcongress.org/philippa-nuttall-jones-foresight/','popup','width=600,height=600'); return false;">Philippa NUTTALL JONES</a> | Editor in Chief | FORESIGHT</br> <br/>Panellists: <br/>- <a href="https://www.ehpcongress.org/carole-le-gall-engie/" target="popup" onclick="window.open('https://www.ehpcongress.org/carole-le-gall-engie/','popup','width=600,height=600'); return false;">Carole LE GALL</a> | Chief Executive Officer BU France networks | ENGIE <br/>- <a href="https://www.ehpcongress.org/sylvie-jehanno-dalkia/" target="popup" onclick="window.open('https://www.ehpcongress.org/sylvie-jehanno-dalkia/','popup','width=600,height=600'); return false;">Sylvie JÉHANNO</a> | Chairwomen & Chief Executive Officer | Dalkia <br/>- <a href="https://www.ehpcongress.org/andre-loesekrug-pietri/" target="popup" onclick="window.open('https://www.ehpcongress.org/julie-laernoes/','popup','width=600,height=600'); return false;"> Julie LAERNOES</a> | Vice-Mayor of Nantes Metropole <br/>- <a href="https://www.ehpcongress.org/andre-loesekrug-pietri/" target="popup" onclick="window.open('https://www.ehpcongress.org/andre-loesekrug-pietri/','popup','width=600,height=600'); return false;">André LOESEKRUG-PIETRI</a> | Speaker | J.E.D.I. <br/>- <a href="https://www.ehpcongress.org/andre-loesekrug-pietri/" target="popup" onclick="window.open('https://www.ehpcongress.org/anton-koller-danfoss/','popup','width=600,height=600'); return false;">Anton KOLLER</a> | Divisional President District Energy | Danfoss

Clean Energy for all Europeans – Implementing the Package
16:45 - 17:45
Though it’s too soon to feel the impacts in practice, the Clean Energy Package is serious business for the DHC sector. A new buildings Directive, updated rules on energy efficiency, a key seat for DHC and waste heat/cold at the renewables table, new rules for energy markets and plenty more will reshape the entire European energy sector – and often in favour of DHC. With the negotiations concluded and the parliamentary term in Brussels coming to an end, it is time to ensure that all this also helps you on the ground – because it can!

Why Waste Heat?
09:00 - 10:30
<br></br>The DHC sector is committed to a radical transformation by 2050 and though the journey will be exciting it won’t be easy! One thing that will certainly help is to make the best possible use of what we have around: heat that is needlessly thrown away, in factories, in data centres, in super markets. The concept isn’t new and who in the sector hasn’t thought about it in the past? Yet we don’t make nearly enough use of the huge potential that is out there. So time to answer some questions: Why is using waste heat actually the sensible thing to do? What do we need to think about? What are the barriers and key success factors? This session is all about why and how to get it done.<br></br> View the session description <strong><a href="https://www.ehpcongress.org/190508-0900-td-waste/" target="popup" onclick="window.open('https://www.ehpcongress.org/190508-0900-td-waste/','popup','width=600,height=600'); return false;">HERE</a></strong> <br></br> <br>Moderator: Susana PAARDEKOOPER| Aalborg University</br> <br />Presenters:</br> <br />- Mariette BILIUS | DCMR Environmental Protection Agency <br />- Rolf KUBY | Aurubis <br />- Kim WINTHER | Fjernvarme Fyn <br />- Jian Jun XIA | Tsinghua University

Track | Society & Vision

DHC does not exist in a vacuum. On the contrary, it is part of, and shaped by the wider world, with all its complexity and dynamism. What are the ‘big picture’ phenomena and mega-trends that will remake our business environment in the coming years? How can and should and will our industry adapt? Let’s find out together!

Track | Technology & Development

The world of DHC is wide and diverse but one thing is universally shared: everyone is looking for ways to do it better! In this track, experts from around the world will present (and pitch!) the secrets of their success as well as their most innovative and disruptive ideas for enhancing the performance of their networks.

Track | Business & Operations

A business oriented look at how plant owners, investors, developers, and financiers can plan and maintain long-term profitability and sustainability. This theme explores real business cases related to DHC and CHP projects. Operators will share their knowledge and insights so that participants may benefit from their experience.

Track |  Side events

Side events are held by organisations to launch initiatives, projects or programmes, or showcase  products and/or services. Side Events provide the perfect occasion for organising panel discussions on specific topics and showcasing professional networks and associations.
