Bristol Heat Network
We are working with Bristol City Leap to decarbonise Bristol
In January 2023, Vattenfall Heat UK acquired Bristol Heat Networks Ltd and is working with Bristol City Leap; a trailblazing large-scale, multi-pronged initiative aimed at achieving carbon neutrality for the city’s energy infrastructure by 2030. Vattenfall will expand the existing heat network, develop new networks and where possible interconnect them to create a single Bristol Heat Network – serving the local community with reliable, low-carbon heat.
Vattenfall bring investment and proven experience in large scale, resilient heat networks across Europe. Within 5 years, 120 GWh of low-carbon heat will be delivered to customers in Bristol through over £200 million of investment into high-quality, long term infrastructure across the city. We will commence construction and seek to develop and expand the heat network areas.
