District Heating Consultancy

We support your District Heating projects from concept to operation.

 

 

Developing a district heating project that meets local authority objectives and is financially viable requires a unique blend of skills. Our service recognises this and is designed to reduce costs, overcome institutional inertia and build customer and investor confidence.

Our consultancy service focuses on delivering high quality systems that deliver on long-term local authority objectives.

We combine sophisticated technical and financial modelling with practical operational experience to establish and measure key project risks. We are committed to a process of communication and knowledge transfer that ensures viable projects are moved through the project development process into the delivery phase.

We take a collaborative approach to financial modelling, ensuring the structure and style of the model meets your needs for both immediate usage and the long term.

We support you through construction and commissioning to ensure that design intent is realised in operation.

We provide support in the three key areas that are crucial to developing a successful District Heating scheme. Each is led by a dedicated expert in that field. Our holistic approach considers the full range of commercial, stakeholder and technical risks that exist within a district heating project, allowing us to drive down risk earlier in the project development process.
