“Our visit to the E.ON Energy Centre provided a valuable insight into the functioning of a district heat network. Mark provided a comprehensive overview of how the system is developed, and how the system and its sources of energy will evolve over time towards zero carbon”. Aaron – Graduate Sustainability Consultant


“We learnt about the engineering challenges involved with constructing and maintaining a district heating network. In addition, we learned the differences between district heat networks and traditional centralised heating networks in terms of economics and customer experience. The presentation highlighted to us the importance of local planning policy in promoting the implementation of district heating networks e.g. East Devon council planning requirements. We learned about potential future projects in which waste heat form the FAB link could be used, along with heat pumps, to implement a more efficient, low temperature District Heating Network”. Kieran – Graduate Sustainability Consultant
