DECC funding boost for heat network industry

BRE Wales & South West along with a consortium of partners have won funding from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) to boost innovation in the heat network industry. A number of proposals were successful under the competition and will be allocated a share of £1million to carry out feasibility studies on their proposed innovation. The consortium which includes BRE, Barden Energy, Bizcat UK, Elgocell, the Home Group (and some of its Cumbrian tenants), will use the capital to look at how viable it is to create a super-efficient district heating network in low rise social housing using innovative Swedish technology.
