Heat Networks Optimisation

At Sustain we focus not just on the heat source. Inefficiency in heat distribution networks often result in significant heat, energy and money being wasted. By designing new heat networks or optimising existing ones, we improve the efficiency and resilience of energy systems for both residential and commercial buildings.

Our engineers have specialist knowledge of the enabling low energy network technologies that all add up to make the network as energy efficient as possible. Some of the elements we look at are: the piping, insulation, controls, emitters (radiators, under floor), pumps, heat interface units, heat exchangers, meters, heat recovery, heat storage, water treatment and filtration.

District heating or building level communal heating, our services will ensure your network is as efficient as possible.

Why work with us?

We take a holistic approach
Through considering the generation, distribution and controls of your heat networks, we are able to build resilience into your system so that it continues to perform efficiently and cost effectively. We can do this by upgrading your existing technologies or by the design and commissioning of new ones.

We design to your brief
Through working closely with you, our chartered engineers design the most appropriate solutions to reduce and manage your heating costs, ensuring resilient and efficient performance for the future, all whilst working to your initial requirements.

We are technology agnostic
Our heat network optimisation service is independent of specific technologies and suppliers allowing us to propose the best solution for your requirements. Whether you want low running costs, reduced carbon output or lower install costs – we design a system that fits your brief.

We are experts in heat networks
In choosing Sustain to optimise and strengthen your heat networks, you will benefit from our technical and project management expertise at every stage. We have worked with over 750 clients on over 14,000 district and communal heating sites providing tangible savings and improved efficiency. For example we recently worked with Great Yarmouth Borough Council who are currently saving over 30% in energy costs per as a result of our work.

What we'll do

For your new build or existing heat networks Sustain’s engineers and project managers can deliver:

  • Performance healthchecks and verification
  • Options appraisals, feasibility studies and investment case modelling
  • Design and performance specification
  • Procurement and installation
