Natural Power’s Senior Renewable Heat Manager, Andy Yuill, has joined the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) Certification Register of Heat Network Consultants following his training and exam success.
The Code of Practice has been jointly developed between CIBSE and the Association for Decentralised Energy to ensure that district heating networks in the UK are designed, built and operated to a high standard. The Code of Practice sets best standards for the specification and development of district heating and can be used when specifying new projects or remedial works to existing district heating networks, and when reviewing a project at every stage of its lifecycle.
District heat networks
District heat networks are a key component to reducing the carbon intensity of the heat used in industry and in homes. District heat networks are common place in continental Europe, where they enable individual sites to access decentralised sources of low carbon heat such as combined heat and power plants or recovered waste heat in a low cost and secure manner.
To ensure that the low cost and secure aspects of district heating are delivered to the end user, the heat network needs to be designed and operated correctly. The Heat Networks: Code of Practice for the UK builds on the experience of existing heat networks in the UK and abroad to provide a consistent set of standards to ensure that the growing district heating industry in the UK deploys new networks which are in line with best practice.
