Heat and the City is a four year research programme examining the development of sustainable, low carbon heating in urban areas.
|Our multi-disciplinary research addresses a major gap in UK sustainable energy policy, which is the neglect of energy used for heating and hot water in buildings. The project is funded by the UK Research Councils’ Energy and Communities Programme, and is one of seven projects which place society, environment and economy at the centre of the public debate. Preliminary findings are summarised in a podcast here. We focus particularly on the potential contribution of community heat (and cooling) networks, combined with energy saving improvements to existing and new buildings. Read more.|
