Shaping the future of buildings & decarbonisation


Installer SHOW – the UK’s largest event for influential installers and specifiers of heat, water, air and energy technology – will discover one of the biggest challenges on the road to net zero, the tools and solutions for decarbonising buildings. 

Taking place on 27 – 29 June at the NEC, Birmingham, the show will feature over 450 of the UK’s leading net-zero innovators in heat water, air and energy, as well as hosting over ten different live content areas featuring inspiring and informative discussions on all the latest approaches to creating buildings that are ready for net zero.

The topic of energy efficiency – how to tackle fuel poverty for households and keep energy costs down for businesses and organisations – is at the forefront of everyone’s mind as we grapple with record high energy prices, and will play a major part in the content at the show. There is also increased focus on water efficiency and indoor air quality, other important pieces in the net zero puzzle.

The two main elemental theatres – Decarbonising Buildings and the Housing Hub – will include sessions on everything from delivering low-energy retrofit in hard-to-treat homes, the importance of improving heat network efficiency, energy generation for local authorities, the Future Homes Standard and more.

Confirmed speakers so far include representatives from Carbon Trust, Midland Heart, DESNZ, Orbit Group, Cundall, National Home Improvement Council, Heat Trust, Energy UK and Birmingham Energy Institute, to name just a few.

Several exciting keynote speakers and hosts have also been confirmed, with former footballer and TV pundit Gary Neville joining for a live Q&A – he is well known for his enthusiasm for
energy-efficient buildings, plus his concerns about the number of people in fuel poverty and poor housing. Also joining the line-up is former housing minister Esther McVey, Greenpeace director Ed Gillespie, environmental journalist Roger Harrabin and The One Show presenter, and eco writer, Lucy Siegle. More names will be announced in the weeks leading up to the show.

As well as this, InstallerSHOW and elemental are thrilled to be working with National Home Improvement Council (NHIC) to deliver its Home Upgrades Conference as part of the 2023 event.

The NHIC sessions at the show will be an integral part of elemental’s Housing Hub, with a series of expert-led panel discussions – throughout the three days – on the challenges and opportunities
facing the housing sector as it strives to achieve low-carbon retrofit at scale. Topics to be covered will include energy efficiency, skills and getting homes ready for net zero, with full details to be released in the run up to the show.

Anna Scothern, chief executive of NHIC, said: “Upgrading our homes to become energy efficient has never been more important and we’re excited to be hosting our conference with elemental at InstallerSHOW 2023. 

The event brings together all the key parts of the retrofit supply chain and we know our delegates will appreciate the chance to network, share knowledge and see the latest low-carbon technologies.”
