Nordic Energy progressed a detailed project development, providing Caerau Primary School with heating sourced from warm water in the former Caerau Colliergy mine workings and, in partnership with Challoch Energy, proving a private wire electricity supply from the Llynfi Afan Wind Farm.
The Rotherham Heat project, developed by Nordic Energy on behalf of Greencoat Capital, was a heat network supplied with heat from the Templeborough Biomass Power Plant. Planned connections included Rotherham Metropolitan Borough Council (RMBC) properties and local Industrial heat users. HNIP funding of £8.3m was secured alongside non-domestic RHI worth circa £12m over the life of the project.
Heat Network Zoning Pilot Project in partnership with Witteveen+Bos
As part of the Government’s commitment to delivering Net Zero by 2050, the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) is committed to introducing legislation for Heat Network Zoning (HNZ) by no later than 2025. Heat network zones are designated geographic areas within which heat networks are expected to offer the lowest cost means of decarbonising heat for a significant number of buildings.
GreenSCIES 5th generation heating and cooling network
The London Borough of Islington has made a net-zero declaration. This date centre in Islington has a constant high demand for chill. By capturing their excess heat, the GreenSCIES energy network can supply heat to local buildings for a much lower carbon footprint than their existing gas boilers.
Old oil, gas and coal workings are a potential for large amounts of renewable heat. The key challenge is the commercial viability of extracting the heat and transporting it to where it is required. The rural nature of many of these sites means that there is a scarcity of nearby heat demands.
