That may sound like a tall order given that heat networks have been around since the 1880’s and are more mature in other parts of Europe.
Third-generation heat networks are very common across Europe. But not so common in Scotland. So, while other countries may be looking to move networks to net zero, we can start anew.
Scotland is planning to reach net zero by 2045 and one of our biggest sources of emissions comes from heating our buildings. Next-generation heat networks offer an essential means to tackle those emissions.
Achieving this ambition will involve the design, investment, build and operation of:
- Fourth Generation Heat Networks
- Fifth Generation Heat Networks
In this webinar, you’ll hear from two very passionate experts with practical and real-world examples of heat networks in Scotland and how next-generation heat networks could be a prime opportunity for Scotland to leapfrog Europe in terms of provision and expertise.
Key learning outcomes
- Why heat networks are vital for reaching net zero
- The scale and ambition of Scotland’s heat networks
- Fourth Generation vs Fifth Generation networks. The differences and benefits
- The key Scottish projects
- How innovations in district heating could see Scotland surpass others in Europe
