Leading Developer of Low-To-Zero District Energy Networks in City Centres
Low-To-Zero Carbon (LZC) District Energy Networks in UK City Centres
- We work alongside Local Authorities to deliver private-sector funded decarbonisation of cities, and delivery of Local Authority objectives.
- We develop and fund city-centre district energy projects from initial feasibility study through to construction and operation, and remain the owner and operator of the projects. We focus primarily on connecting office and commercial buildings, and also the supply of bulk heat to residential developments.
- 1Energy plans to invest more than £200m into city centre district energy projects in the UK over the next 6 years.
