In our latest podcast, our experts Ed Reed, Tom Lusher, Stuart Leaver and Duncan Southgate – an associate – discuss developments in the UK Heat Networks Space. This follows on from our popular insight paper “The Future of UK heat networks – critical comparisons with European markets”.
The experts discuss the challenges the UK faces to tackle heat decarbonisation. They also look back historically at the pathway the UK has taken to expand low-carbon heat. Additionally, the podcast explores which technology is viable to help the UK achieve future heat targets.
They also explore the UK vision, commenting on opportunities for investment and risk management and potential developments in market regulation. Our experts discuss the key role of Local Authorities in this nascent market. Highlighting the opportunities and challenges facing the sector, we compare other European markets who have made strides in decarbonising heat. The role of energy efficiency is also considered as a means of delivering carbon reductions more efficiently.
Below is a 90-second extract from our full podcast on UK heat networks.
Insight paper | The future of UK heat networks: critical comparisons with European markets
This insight paper explores the development of UK heat networks. Comparatively, it looks at European markets and highlights what lessons can be learnt from other markets.
Key aspects of the report are:
- peer analysis of three countries as a comparison – Germany, Netherlands and Sweden. We highlight several lessons for the UK to consider when establishing its heat market.
- the UK should be planning for a more advanced and aggregated heat market.
- the barriers which are required to be overcome to make this a reality.
