The UK District Energy Association (ukDEA) was launched by Greg Barker MP, formerly the Minister of State for Climate Change, at DEKB's 1st National Decentralised Energy Conference at the ICC Birmingham
Greg Barker said at the time: "As a long time advocate of District Energy, I look forward to working with them (ukDEA) and their members to refine our approach and I hope, potentially, to work with them in Government"
The partners, owners and operators of the largest district energy schemes in the UK have aligned themselves in the creation of the UK District Energy Association (ukDEA); with the aim of not only promoting district energy as a means to deliver significant carbon savings, but also to establish a direct link between the Government and the industry's small market base.
The Association is a not for profit, non-trade association of companies and public sector organisations involved or interested in district energy schemes of all sizes, from village scale, community based 'micro district energy' schemes to city wide district heat energy networks.
Still in its infancy, the ukDEA has attracted leading players in the industry, with the ukDEA's Full members comprising of 17 major organisations:
- Birmingham City Council
- Brookfield Utilities/GTC Limited
- Cofely District Energy Limited
- Coventry City Council
- ENER-G Switch 2 Limited

- Leicester City Council
- Manchester City Council
- Newcastle City Council
- Newport City Homes Limited
- Shetland Heat, Energy and Power Limited
