Bristol City Council is busy installing Bristol’s Heat Network – a new network of underground pipes that will deliver affordable, low-carbon heat and energy across the city. A network that will eventually cover central Bristol and other areas across the city, powered by low carbon energy centres.
At the Zoom event Jon Sankey, the Business Development Project Manager in the Energy Service at Bristol City Council, will explain how the project aims to help counter climate change. Bristol has committed to becoming a carbon neutral city by 2030 and the development of the Heat Networks is seen to be a key contributor to achieving this goal, by providing local businesses and housing with heat and power from more sustainable sources.
The City Council is currently building heat networks in four areas: Redcliffe, Old Market, Temple and Bedminster. In the future, networks will be built in other areas of the city and plans have been drawn up for them in the Ashton Gate, City Centre, Frome Gateway and Spike Island areas.
Civic Society members will receive emails to attend the event.
