The Competition and Markets Authority (CMA) has launched a study of domestic heat networks that will consider potential regulatory reforms for use of the technology, which is seen as an important part of government’s low carbon plans.
The British Electrotechnical and Allied Manufacturers Association (BEAMA) has argued for a more regional approach for setting out strategies for the electrification of heat services.
The UK must look to its European neighbours for examples of heat network strategies that can help overcome existing barriers to expanding uptake of such systems, a new study has concluded. Greater choice and flexibility in how heat networks are implemented and managed is expected to be an important step in decarbonising buildings across the UK in order to drastically cut carbon emissions.
Heat network provider Switch2 Energy has welcomed government commitments to introduce fresh consumer protections and further funding for district heating projects.
