Heat Networks Soon To Come To The UK?
Keeping your house warm and toasty during the winter without spending too much money is a key concern for homeowners – and it can be quite tricky to achieve.
However, the government seems to think it’s found the answer to keeping houses nice and warm without breaking the bank and that’s establishing heat networks around the UK, a scheme that’s had a lot of success over in Scandinavia.
Apparently, the government is now planning to invest £320 million over the next five years so that towns and cities around the UK can use low carbon heat to supply homes and businesses. It’s thought that these networks could actually drive down heating costs by over 30 per cent for some households, so it certainly seems like it’s worth doing.
Amber Rudd, secretary of state for energy and climate change, said: “This is an important next step in developing more home-grown energy, which is a vital part of our plan to ensure long-term energy security and affordable energy for our families and businesses. The funding we’re consulting on today will enable these schemes to provide affordable low carbon energy to thousands of homes and businesses across Britain’s towns and cities.”
There are many advantages to district heating, such as making transportation and use of heat more efficient. Energy generation costs are also lower and a greater number of energy generation resources can be used to meet heating demands.
