Heat and the City workshop wins prize

H&TC wins Edinburgh Beltane Public Engagement Challenge prize 22/03/12

Heat and the City's Leadership and Organisation for District Energy workshop (September 2011) was awarded joint second prize in the third round of the Edinburgh Beltane Public Engagement Challenge. The Challenge aims to foster a cultural shift within universities towards greater engagement between academics and broader society. The Heat and the City workshop brought together officers from local authorities actively engaged in development of new district heating networks, along with expert practitioners and policy makers, and was an opportunity for mutual learning, both between academics and practitioners, and amongst an emerging network of "vanguard" local authorities. The prize includes £1,000 for further engagement work
