Boxset: watch all BEAMA with elemental talks sessions on demand

In December we held a three-day digital event in association with BEAMA, focusing on how we can plan and adapt our buildings to achieve our net zero ambitions by 2050.

Day one looked at future home technologies and the fundamental changes needed to be made to our housing stock, involving complete decarbonisation – removing our reliance on natural gas-fired boilers in favour of heat pumps, electric heating, district heat networks, and gas grid alternatives such as biogas and hydrogen.

It kicked off with a session on ethical IoT from Christopher Jones, CEO at HomeLINK.

The second session was a roundtable on future technologies, with speakers including:

  • Chris Jones  – HomeLINK
  • Simon Ayers – TrustMark
  • Rebecca Lane –  Energy Catapult
  • Jeremy Yapp – BEAMA

Day two concentrated on skills for decarbonising heat, reinforcing the importance of acquiring knowledge and developing the relevant skills to ensure that products are installed to a standard that guarantees the comfortable, consistent temperatures that the householder expects, now and in the future.

Speakers include:

  • Mark Barson – Vaillant Group
  • John Trenell – Tailored Heat
  • Richard Burrows – Mid Wales Plumbing and Heating

Day three considered healthy buildings. Good ventilation and air quality, a comfortable temperature are all components of a ‘healthy’ building. BEAMA is an advocate of greater awareness of the impact of poor indoor air quality in UK homes, and actively campaigns to improve ventilation across the country, working with consumers, policymakers and industry. ABB will be joining the programme.

First up, we had a session from ABB, with an overview of the greater focus on staff wellbeing than ever before, and the advancing technologies for building management systems that allow simplicity of control, automated of functions and fully customisable settings it is now easier than ever to implement these solutions.

The final session of the series was a roundtable on healthy buildings, discussing the current evidence on the causes and impacts of poor indoor air quality, potential technical and political solutions, and a wider view on how we can make our buildings healthier.

Speakers include:

Jade Lewis (Chief Executive of the Sustainable Energy Association)

Dr Marcella Ucci (Associate Professor in Environmental and Healthy Buildings at the Bartlett’s UCL Institute for Environmental Design and Engineering, University College London)

Keith Ritchie (Chairman of BEAMA Ventilation and Executive Chairman of Titon)

The sessions were sponsored and supported by BEAMA, ABB, Aico and HomeLINK.
