Government unveils national heat map for CHP boost

A national heat map has been launched by the UK government to promote the use of combined heat & power, renewable heat plants and district heating in buildings.
Government unveils national heat map for CHP boost
Accessible on the Department of Energy and Climate Change's (DECC) website, the map is part of the government's strategy to help promote decentralised energy for new and existing buildings.

The map has been created as a successor to the original industrial heat map aimed at helping power station developers consider opportunities for combined heat and power (CHP). Now, the updated map can be used by small and large organisations to identify locations where CHP, renewable heat plants and district heating would have the greatest technical and economic potential and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.

The interactive heat map shows the heat demand within the UK across various sectors. The search facilities allow users to search for heat use in specific post code districts.

“This new service AEA has developed for DECC will be invaluable for organisations who are exploring the opportunities for the development of CHP and renewable heat plants. The heat demand can also be separated by sector with large users highlighted on an individual basis”, said Mahmoud Abu-Ebid, charts chief consultant at AEA.

AEA provides low carbon policy advice including CHP to the UK government.
