Welcome to the brand new UKDEA Website!

We consider our Website to be the hub of all things happening in the UK across the district energy sector. Here you can read about the latest news updates and Member news. Also take a look at our upcoming events with our Events Calendar, or, as an exclusive feature for our Members, the brand new District Energy Library.

The Library will progressively grow to house hundreds of documents that Members can access at any time for free as part of their membership. We plan to continually upload documents over time both from our “back catalog” and as new publications are issued so if you are a Member please check back often to see if there’s anything new that may be of use.

Also if you are considering joining please review the Member Benefits page or if you are an existing Member please ensure that you are making the most of these benefits.

We hope that you find the new website easy to navigate, but we would welcome feedback as this is our first refresh since the association was set up 10 years ago. Therefore please contact the Secretary on secretary@ukdea.org.uk with any comments, or if you like what you see and want to join us as the information hub and “Voice for the Sector” do please click the “Join Here” button opposite.
