Heat Networks – Strategic Planning and Delivery

The question of how to reduce emissions from buildings through heat decarbonisation and energy efficiency is high on the UK policy agenda. Heat is a major part of the UK economy, and accounts for around a third of total carbon emissions. Heat networks can potentially serve as the key in the search of an economically sound and emission reducing energy solution.

On 17 April 2023,  State of Green along with the Danish Embassy in London hosted an event looking at best practices within strategic planning and delivery of heat networks for local authorities in London. The event focused on planning and delivering heat networks and the role of local authorities.

We also got a chance to hear about the heat network mentor programme, which links local authorities from Denmark and the UK.

  • Will be available from Wednesday 25 April

Next step is a study tour to Denmark in May. The Danish Embassy in London and State of Green will reach out to relevant participants.

Denmark has substantial knowledge and expertise to share, with more than 50 years’ worth of experience in regulating and developing heat networks. To date, 64% of Danish households are connected to heat networks. In parts of Copenhagen, 98% of households are connected. Furthermore, almost 60% of the heat supplied through heat networks in Denmark is generated from renewables and by 2030; the sector is expected to be 100% fossil free.

This event is the first in a series of events. Subsequent events in London are in planning as well as a study trip to Denmark offering the opportunity to learn, first-hand from the Danish experiences.
