A new publication from CIBSE and the Association for Decentralised Energy provides a useful guide to heating networks for building owners and developers.

Heat Networks

As well as explaining what heating networks are, and the potential benefits they offer, the new guide covers all of the stages of the development cycle of a project and how to use the Heat Networks: Code of Practice for the UK in contracts and tender documents.

In exploring the potential benefits of heat networks the guide considers the economic and environmental implications, as well as compliance with national legislation and local planning regulations. This is followed by an overview of how the Code of Practice is applied through feasibility studies, design, construction, commissioning and operation.

The heat networks guide for owners and developers can be downloaded free of charge here.
