Scottish Plan for DH Welcomed

On the 6th March 2014, the Scottish Government has published its plan for delivering low-carbon heat. With funding increased to £10.5 million over the next two years, support will be given to the development of district heating networks in Scotland.

It is planned that this drive towards a more efficient way of delivering heat will reduce costs, lower carbon emissions and help provide commercial opportunities and advantages to the industry through infrastructure development.

Bob Stamp, director of AloGen Limited, commented: “This move towards what is undoubtedly the best technological platform for delivering affordable, low-carbon heat must be applauded.”

“By investing in district heating networks, multiple energy sources can be utilised, ensuring a diverse mix of technologies can all contribute. I’d hope that biomass CHP will be able to play its part in this development, as it offers some of the best carbon savings available.”
