Linking together the operational Heat Network connecting 13 social housing blocks with a new network
– The Purpose of District Heating Project is to provide a lower carbon and more efficient heat by linking together the operational Heat Network connecting 13 social housing blocks with a new network powered by a Combined Heat and Power Engine.
– By linking the two energy centres the whole system will better utilise the low carbon heat from providing more efficient and cheaper heat across the network.
– The Bristol pilot has connected the existing system of the Redcliffe Network to the Council’s offices in 100 Temple Street, where a new energy centre is being constructed to provide low cost heat to the buildings within the locality.
