With the UK and world focus on reducing carbon emissions, heat projects such as biomass, ground and air source heat pumps, geothermal and solar thermal projects play an increasingly important role in the UK achieving its 2020 renewable energy target of 12% of heat being supplied from renewable sources.
Whilst opportunities for renewable heat are important to the energy sector, businesses need expert advice to overcome the contractual and regulatory obstacles that they will face.
Renewable heat is more than individual assets with district heat networks increasingly being recognised by local authorities and other registered providers as well as the wider public sector as a mechanism that can play a positive role in empowering communities and establishing greater energy cost certainty and security for consumers. With the current UK government rebalancing economic priorities, local authorities and registered providers have a real opportunity to develop schemes that can act as a catalyst for urban renewal and economic growth.
