The ADE is the voice for a cost effective efficient, low carbon, user-led energy system; a market in which decentralised energy can flourish. As a trade association, it brings together more than 100 members and interested parties from across the sector to develop a strong, dynamic and sustainable environment for a range of technologies including combined heat and power, district heating networks and demand side energy services, including demand response. The ADE advocates the value of a user-orientated approach to meeting energy requirements. By starting with the consumer, examining their needs and considering the user in their local context it is possible to design a more local, efficient and less costly energy system where each technology and infrastructure option is considered on its merits.
