About us

As the leading trade association for decentralised energy, the Association for Decentralised Energy (ADE) is setting the vision of a local, efficient, low carbon energy system which enables energy users to make the choices which work for them. We represent 160 interested parties from across the energy sector.

About the role

The ADE is recruiting for a Policy Officer or Manager, with a specialist focus on heat decarbonisation and heat networks.

How we decarbonise the heating in our homes, businesses and industry is one of the most difficult challenges in reaching net zero but also one of the most fascinating. To get there, we will need an enormous uptake of new infrastructure, new and innovative customer service models and new governance frameworks.

Whilst the UK has made significant strides in decarbonising power generation, the vast majority of our heat still comes from natural gas. However, it all starts here: the Government is about to pass new legislation on heat decarbonisation and heat networks specifically that will kick-start a decades-long transformation.

This role is an exceptional opportunity to work directly on a transformation just as it is really getting going and will continue to be crucial to 2050 and beyond.

The role will work with large companies investing in large-scale and building-level heat networks, shared ground loops and the wider heat sector, their supply chain, the Government, Scottish Government, Ofgem, Local Authorities and the gas and electricity network operators.

Person specification


  • Good academic qualifications or substantial work experience in the field;
  • Excellent written and oral presentation skills and ability to communicate to a wide variety of audiences; and
  • Ability to work well, and independently, in a small team environment.


  • Knowledge of energy policy;
  • Experience of working in a public policy environment
