Opportunities for heat, cooling, power and energy storage in a post-subsidy environment
About Bean Beanland & Hugh Taylor
Bean has an Honours Degree in Physics from Imperial College, is an Associate of the Royal College of Science and is the retained ground-source heat pump specialist for ReEnergise. He has nearly ten years of experience in evaluating opportunities and specifying ground-source systems in both domestic and commercial sectors, including rural estates, and across both retrofit and new build developments.
He sits on the Microgeneration Certification Scheme Working Group for Heat Pumps, the Ofgem Domestic Renewable Heat Incentive Industry Forum and on the DBEIS Industry Advisory Group. He is Vice Chairman of the Ground Source Heat Pump Association and sits on its Policy Development Committee.
Hugh is from an Oxfordshire farming family and has been in the energy sector for nearly ten years. As CEO of independent power consultancy Roadnight Taylor, he has overseen feasibility studies, grid consenting, tendering, design, installation and project management of power plant, energy and storage schemes totalling over a gigawatt across 200 sites of conventional and renewable technologies.
Hugh sits on expert panels for all six of the UK’s Distribution Network Operators (DNOs) giving him first-hand knowledge and understanding of their procedures and ongoing strategies. He also has a deep understanding of National Grid’s Capacity Market and its various balancing markets. Hugh is a regular consultee to BEIS and Ofgem, as well as a popular and engaging speaker at industry events.
The presentation will seek to explain how farms, estates, land owners and managers can consider maximising the energy and thermal assets of their holdings as government seeks to reduce, and ultimately, remove all subsidies.
Bean Beanland will consider future heat, decarbonisation and air-quality policy and the impact that this will have on Building Regulations for both new builds and retro-fit projects.
Hugh Taylor will cover opportunities for large-scale solar, battery storage, gas gensets as well as the opportunities for energy cost savings and additional revenues from investment in behind-the-meter power generation and storage solutions.
