Rollout of heat network zones in the UK

The government will proceed with its plans to develop heat network zones.

A heat network zone is described as a chosen area within which heat networks are the lowest expenditure, low carbon solution for the heat decarbonisation of an area.

The government’s disclosure will persue a consultation and the 2020 Energy White Paper where it devoted to announcing heat network zoning in England by 2025.

Officials plan to initially identify potential heat network zones – there will be a “national mapping exercise” led by a central authority to identify and prioritise areas where heat network zones might be located.

The exercise will be fulfilled by a “local refinement stage” which will distinguish the limits of these zones.

It is estimated that right now about 2% of the UK heat needs and demands is provided by heat networks.

The Climate Change Committee estimated that with government initiatives this may rise to a much larger 18% by 2050.
