Bristol City Council is committed to delivering heat networks across the city in order for Bristol to be carbon neutral by 2050. Heat networks are an efficient and cost effective way of cutting carbon emissions and Bristol has had a form of district heating system since the 1960’s. The adjacent plan shows the existing network. Further benefits are:

  • Lower capital and operational costs
  • Space saving meaning more land is available for development
  • No need to oversize existing systems to take account of extreme weather conditions
  • Secure forms of heating and future proofing your supply for future changes in government fossil fuel policy
  • Compliance with building regulations and planning policy
  • Improved air quality and carbon reduction
  • Reduced Energy costs

It is anticipated that Development of the Site will need to link into the District Heating Network, as a key sustainability initiative being promoted by Bristol City Council.
