elemental is running several content theatres at InstallerSHOW this year, and we’ve just published the line-up in the Making Buildings Smarter Theatre, running on 21st and 22nd June at the NEC.

Kicking off the first day, 21st June, we have a session on the Energy Superhub Oxford, one of the world’s most ambitious urban decarbonisation projects. Hear from the team working on this government-backed project that will help Oxford reach net zero by 2040. Energy Superhub Oxford includes a powerful network providing rapid electric vehicle (EV) charging, hybrid battery storage, low carbon heating and smart energy management. It combines new technologies and financial models to create a blueprint for towns and cities across the UK to cut carbon emissions and improve air quality. Speakers for this session include Kensa Group’s Matt Trewhella alongside Tina Mould, Capital Programme Project Manager, Oxford City Council, and Tim Rose, Programme Manager, Energy Superhub Oxford, Pivot Power.
