Following the success of Delta-ee's European Heat Summit in 2017, which brought together over 70 delegates and speakers for an exclusive event, we're pleased to announce the event will return in 2018 and will take place in Berlin, Germany on 13th and 14th June.

Bringing together both the Gas Heating and Electrification of Heat roundtables on day one, and a full Summit programme on day two, the event will stimulate a breadth and depth of interesting discussion and debate.

The event will also include a dinner in a central Berlin location, providing an excellent networking opportunity.



Day 1 - Roundtables

The event will begin with two concurrent Roundtables, exclusive to Delta-ee subscribers and selected guests. If you are interested in attending either event and are not a subscriber, please contact Kathryn Black to make an enquiry or for further information.

Roundtable programme
Electrification of Heat Roundtable
Micro-CHP and High Efficiency Gas Heating Roundtable

Our research shows the growing importance of electrically-driven heating in the European heating market, especially in countries where decarbonisation of heat and stabilisation of the electricity supply is high on the agenda. The regular addition of new business models to the value chain underlines the high value that this sector can generate for both current and new stakeholders.


This invitation-only roundtable will allow Delta-ee subscribers and selected guests to come together to view highlights from the Electrification of Heat Service, and to explore key topics in the European electrically-driven heating market. We will also hold a workshop to explore methods of increasing installer engagement with electrically-driven heating.

Workshop: Optimising installer uptake of electrically-driven heating options: Discussion led by Delta-ee


A facilitated workshop discussion to explore the methods which industry can employ to encourage instalers to increase uptake of heat pumps. Installer engagement and capability are key barriers to growth in electrification of heat.

Led by Delta-ee

The Delta-ee Gas Heating Service provides insight for the heating, energy and service industries on the future of gas heating in buildings. It is widely accepted that if decarbonisation goals to be achieved, this sector must evolve. Options include the introduction of new products that use fuel more efficiently – e.g. fuel cells, micro-CHP or hybrids – or via a transition to lower-carbon forms of gas, like biomethane or hydrogen.

Our unique invitation-only roundtable event offers the chance for Delta-ee subscribers and selected stakeholder guests to come together to discuss the future of the gas heating market in Europe, get up to speed with the latest market and policy developments, and showcase emerging market hotspots.
