Leeds infuses £24m to develop district heating networks: Plans were unveiled to lower the region’s carbon dioxide emissions and save money by investing £24 million and in six new district heating networks by Leeds City Council.

The regional authority is presently exploring a spectrum of green technologies, in conjunction with the possible use of ground and air source heat pumps or biomass system, to power the six new networks,

The scheme, predicted to save about 950 tonnes of greenhouse gases annually and help tenants save a typical 10% on their energy bills, is expected to cover 1,485 council homes,

By providing low carbon waste-powered heat to 1,983 residences by the end of 2020, the contribution will be following Leeds’ first district heating network.

“Thanks to this major new investment in six new district heating networks, thousands of more residents will soon be able to stay warm for less too, which we know can make a real difference to our physical and financial wellbeing.” Deputy Leader and Executive Member for Communities, Councillor Debra Coupar expressed.

Around a quarter of Leeds’ carbon dioxide emissions are developed by way of energy use.
