England Maps National Heat Strategy and District Heating Systems
The creation of the National Heat Map is part of a government effort to create a comprehensive national heat strategy. The heat strategy will identify how the country supplies and uses heat and create a policy framework to guide future reductions in the amount of energy that is used for heating buildings.
The UK uses more energy for heating than for transport or the year the UK will spend around £33 billion on heat across the economy. Read More..

Following the UK Government's call for the creation and expansion of district heating networks, the Combined Heat & Power Association (CHPA) has published the UK’s first Map of District Heating Schemes.
The Association for Decentralised Energy identified over 200 existing heat networks - a mixture of residential, commercial and public sites - with a further 70 in development. Data were compiled through a survey of ADE members and scheme operators. There is currently no mandatory reporting requirement for district heating in the UK, so the scale of deployment has previously been unknown. (Statistics are available for other EU Member States, where district heating is more prevalent. Visit Euroheat & Power's website for more information.)
