In 2019, the UK became the world's first major economy to pledge to hit net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050. In order to meet this ambitious pledge, we need to completely rethink how our society functions, including how we heat our homes.

What we do

Only now are large-scale, robust networks beginning to appear in the UK, benefiting from the opportunity to learn from and build on the experience of successful rollouts across Europe.

We have a vision for expanding UK heat networks and, using our experience in Europe, are committed to leading the way for low carbon heating in the UK.
