Welcome to the November edition of the Vattenfall Heat UK newsletter.
This month: harnessing low carbon for UK cities with Viridor, a new ESCo with Midlothian Council, and Rachael Mills on the Connecting Women in District Heat Conference 2020.
This collaboration will explore opportunities to provide clean, affordable heat to homes and businesses across the country through new local energy systems, anchored around Viridor’s fleet of energy recovery facilities.
Midlothian Council, which recently declared a Climate Emergency, and Vattenfall have formally launched a new Energy Services Company (ESCo).
Vattenfall Heat UK is proud to be the platinum sponsor to the second annual District Heating Divas Conference this year. Conference organiser Rachael Mills of SE2 takes our guest blog spot this month to discuss how Divas came about and has grown.

The UK's heating needs an upgrade. We explore why it's so important we act now to enable fossil free heating in the UK.
