Bristol’s largest district heating network contract on track

Bristol City Council, the University of Bristol and the University Hospital Bristol NHS Foundation Trust have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU), showing their commitment to work together on what will be the city’s largest district heating neBristol citytwork.

The university and hospital network will be fuelled by an efficient combined heat and power (CHP) energy centre, which will provide both organisations with low carbon energy and cheaper heating costs.

Paul Isbell, Energy Service Corporate Manager at the council said the network would reduce “heat waste and improve the city’s infrastructure.

“Signing of the MoU signals the commitment of three city institutions to work together and the proposed network should help the university and hospital to reduce carbon emissions and enjoy lower fuel costs by switching to a more efficient power source.”

UKDEA website says engineering and construction management firm Parsons Brinckerhoff conducted a technical and feasibility study, which mapped energy demands, identified the best networks to consider and developed a project delivery plan and risk assessment.
