Case Study 

Heat Network Zoning Pilot Project in partnership with Witteveen+Bos 

Department for Business Energy and Industrial Strategy 
To devise a methodology which indicates where heat networks will have a strong impact 


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. The Heat Network Zoning Pilot Project, involving 28 cities, is enabling BEIS to assess how best to roll out the programme across the country. 
Nordic Energy, with partners Witteveen+Bos, have been appointed to deliver the project in the cities of Sheffield, Peterborough and Stoke-on-Trent. 


Engaging with key stakeholders in each of our cities, and gathering all relevant data for the mapping of potential heat network zones. 
We are an Heat Network Delivery Unit approved supplier. We are working collaboratively with other leading suppliers in the heat network space to develop UK policy in the direction of greater heat network rollouts
