District Heating

A way of providing heating from a single centralised source to a number of homes or offices. Projects currently under way are the Clydes tower blocks in Armley and the new Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility  in Cross Green. Conversation highlighted that energy providers and customers are key in all discussion around this work.

Challenges identified were ensuring enough people sign up for DH to make it cost-effective and that the people who need it most, those in fuel poverty, have the chance to be involved.

Ideas to make the scheme work were around securing 100% private finance investment or organising a campaign designed to get people to change their energy consumption habits to use less.  In a perfect world this scheme should be available to all the older housing stock (before 1920s) in Leeds.
