There is increasing recognition of the important role to be played by heat networks in delivering sustainable cities. Heat networks provide a lower carbon solution to heat provision that is also cheaper for consumers, and they enable us to use a range of sources including surplus and renewable heat. Growing Heat Networks offers insights to what the industry can expect in 2015, the future plans for heat networks in Manchester, as well as views from leading practitioner Rambøll.
