UK conference focuses on renewable liquid heating fuels

Eurofuel and its members support a low-carbon and renewable pathway for liquid heating fuel. Amongst the latest examples, our member OFTEC, a leading 'not for profit' trade organisation for the heating and cooking industries in the UK and Republic of Ireland, announces a conference that will focus on renewable liquid fuels.

Transitioning oil homes to renewable liquid fuels will take centre stage at OFTEC’s 2022 conference where industry leaders will meet to discuss the progress made towards delivering a sustainable low carbon future for the off-grid sector.

The 2022 conference is being hosted at the NEC Birmingham on Thursday 23 June. OFTEC has partnered with the industry leading InstallerSHOW and will be also hosting a series of events during the three-day exhibition (21-23 June).

MW HVODuring the conference, OFTEC CEO Paul Rose will assess the current landscape for off-grid heating policy, the need to deliver realistic and affordable low carbon solutions and the liquid fuel industry’s important role in achieving the government’s net zero ambitions.

OFTEC’s technical director Andy Matthews will also share the findings and analysis on the trade association’s joint industry demonstration project which has seen over 100 oil heated homes and commercial premises across the UK successfully transition to HVO following a simple low-cost conversion.

Andy will be joined by Malcolm Farrow, head of public affairs at OFTEC, who will showcase the Future Ready Fuel campaign and widespread support from consumers for renewable liquid fuels, and Mars Mlodzinski, owner of My Home Farm, who is participating in the HVO demonstration project and will share his first-hand experience of living with the fuel.

Malcolm Farrow, from OFTEC, commented: “We’re excited to unveil our 2022 conference line up and partnership with InstallerShow at this important time for the industry. Now, more than ever in this current landscape, we need realistic, cost-effective and workable low carbon solutions to decarbonise the off-grid sector and meet our net zero ambitions.

“Our industry has united to lead the way with renewable liquid fuels, converting over 100 oil properties across the UK to HVO and reducing their emissions by 88%. We look forward to providing further insight to attendees as we continue to engage directly with the government to secure a wider rollout of the fuel.”
