Government (UK) awards £40m for seven district heating networks

Date: 7 February 2020

An investment of £40 million has been announced for seven district heating network projects, which will give thousands of homes access to low carbon heating
The heat networks, which provides heating in place of a traditional gas boiler, will be developed in Bristol, Leeds, Liverpool and London.

The winners of the government’s Heat Networks Investment Project are Barking and Dagenham Council, Bristol City Council, Leeds City Council, Energetik, Veolia and Peel Energy.

Under the schemes, around 30,000 more homes will have access to clean heating, helping reduce around 154,300 tonnes of carbon over the next 15 years. That’s equivalent to planting around 400,000 trees.
