Heat Networks – Single Heat Source Systems
As a Country, we spend a massive £32 billion a year on heating, which accounts for around a third of the country’s greenhouse gas emissions. Heat networks can aid significant CO2 and financial savings.
A heat network, or district heating, uses a single heat source to supply multiple buildings with thermal energy that can be used for space heating, hot water and even cooling.
Buildings are connected to the single source via insulated piping which is most commonly placed underground or through interconnected buildings.
There are over 17,000 heat networks in the UK which connect almost 492,000 domestic, commercial, retail, industrial and public sector customers.
Reduce fuel and maintenance costs
Our heat networks are intelligent and efficient, reducing fuel waste. Consolidating multiple heat sources can reduce maintenance costs.
Sell thermal energy at competitive prices
Become an independent, local provider of heat to businesses or residents.
Variety of heat sources
Heat networks can be supplied by a diverse range of sources including:
> Energy from waste facilities
> Industrial processes
> Biomass fuelled boilers and CHP plants
> Biogas fuelled boilers and CHP plants
> Natural gas-fired CHP units
> Heat Pumps
> Geothermal Sources
Scale and scope to meet your needs
Connect buildings on a single site, facilities on separate sites or communities and monitor usage through individual metering. Each building can utilise the thermal energy independently, whether they require space heating, hot water or cooling.
