Head of Content, elemental.
Last year was elemental’s first as part of InstallerSHOW and, as our content takes shape for the 2023 event, it’s clear our focus on decarbonising buildings has never been more important.
With three days of inspiring and informative discussion on all the latest approaches to creating buildings that are ready for net zero, the elemental content theatres at InstallerSHOW 2023 will give visitors the tools and the connections to decarbonise existing buildings and new developments.
The topic of energy efficiency – how to tackle fuel poverty for households and keep energy costs down for businesses and organisations – is at the forefront of everyone’s mind as we grapple with record high energy prices, and will play a major part in our content at the show. There is also increased focus on water efficiency and indoor air quality, other important pieces in the net zero puzzle.
The two main elemental theatres – Decarbonising Buildings and the Housing Hub – will include sessions on everything from delivering low-energy retrofit in hard-to-treat homes to the importance of improving heat network efficiency.
Our confirmed speakers so far include Carbon Trust, Midland Heart, DESNZ, Orbit Group, Cundall, Heat Trust, Energy UK and Birmingham Energy Institute.
We have several exciting keynote speakers and hosts confirmed already, with former footballer and TV pundit Gary Neville joining us for a live Q&A – he is well known for his enthusiasm for energy-efficient buildings, plus his concerns about the number of people in fuel poverty and poor housing. We also have former housing minister Esther McVey, Greenpeace director Ed Gillespie, environmental journalist Roger Harrabin and The One Show presenter, and eco writer, Lucy Siegle. More names will be announced in the weeks leading up to the show.
