H&V News | UK Heat network potential going unrealised, report warns

Cornwall Insight’s latest insight paper, The future of UK heat networks was featured in H&V news. The paper shows the heat network market finds strong scope for growth, yet take-up is limited at present in the broader formation of national decarbonisation plans.

Stuart Leaver an analyst at Cornwall Insight commented that there are a number of innovative investment opportunities that have been highlighted by analysing other heat networks across Europe.

Most importantly, for this to be a success, the UK will need to mitigate the risk to investment for heat networks. This will require thoughts around multiple supplier models for heat, and the opportunity to promote competition and therefore innovation. With more of an interconnected network, the UK should be able to reap the benefits and lower their carbon emissions.”
