Local Authority Webinar Series | Supporting the Delivery of Low Carbon Infrastructure
Looking beyond the challenges of the COVID-19 pandemic, local authorities are adapting to climate change in the context of a range of socio-economic and technical changes that face the UK. With local authorities declaring climate emergencies and with a drive to “Build Back Greener”, we are starting to see a push forward with climate emergency planning. But how will infrastructure need to change to support this low carbon transition?
In this webinar, we will look at three key elements of the infrastructure changes required – heat, power and transport, and what local authorities need to consider.
We will cover:
- With 85% of UK housing heated with gas central heating and a high percentage of aging building stock and single-family residences, how improvements in building design standards will reduce the need for heat
- The required changes in utility infrastructure and the way we buy energy, and the implications for the cost of energy to residences
- How the UK is moving towards electric vehicles for public, private or commercial vehicles and the required infrastructure changes needed
- Technological advancements and learnings we can take from what is happening elsewhere in the world
