£6m invested in affordable heat innovation

The Department of Energy & Climate Change (DECC) has announced the development of innovative heat network technologies will go ahead thanks to £6m in funding.

The final nine winners of DECC’s Heat Network Small Business Research Initiative include projects using Big Data to diagnose performance issues and the recovery of heat from data centres and canals.

Addressing the Association for Decentralised Energy’s President’s Reception, energy minister Lord Bourne said: “I’m delighted that we’re supporting projects that will help further exploit the benefits of heat networks.”

Association for Decentralised Energy director Dr Tim Rotheray said: “Investment in innovation is a vital step for shaping a more local, less wasteful system.

“Through this investment in heat networks, we have a real opportunity to put the energy user at the centre of the system, helping them to manage bills while also reducing carbon.”
