Green Heat Network Fund Set to Open to Applicants in 2022

The Government has released initial details of its Green Heat Network Fund (GHNF) which will open to applicants in England from April 2022 and is anticipated to run until 2025, incentivising new and existing heat networks to move away from high-carbon sources.

With decarbonising heat set as a key part of the Government’s heat and buildings strategy, the new fund is intended to replace the existing Heat Networks Investment Project (HNIP) that has been available since 2018.

The £270 million GHNF will only support low-carbon technologies such as heat pumps, solar and heat recovery in the rollout of the next generation of heat networks. The intent is to help cut carbon emissions from domestic and commercial building heating – which accounts for 21% of the UK total – making it one of the country’s largest carbon emissions sources.

Heat networks, supplying heat to buildings from a central source, are intended to provide large-scale renewable and recovered heat. The GHNF will only support applications if they include low-carbon heat-generating technologies, such as heat pumps and waste heat with the aim of incentivising and kick-starting the demand for heat pumps as part of a wider mix of low-carbon heating options.

Although heat networks currently meet approximately 2% of the overall UK demand for heating, the independent Committee on Climate Change (CCC) has estimated that, with continued support, they could provide 18% by 2050.

The Green Heat Network Fund is expected to fund the delivery of an estimated 10.3Mt of total carbon savings by 2050.

Adveco Covid 19 update – Engineering Site Visits

The provision of heating and especially hot water within hospitals and residential care facilities, supermarkets and those supporting key workers, such as schools, is being actively prioritised for support by Adveco. An important aspect of that work is the provision of site-based engineering services for emergency call outs, ensuring priority customers have a reliable supply of heating and, in particular, hot water.

Regarded as essential work, we are still providing this service in these times of social distancing and stay at home rules. Adveco is taking all necessary measures to protect its staff and help prevent further spread of the Coronavirus. As a result, we have made some alterations to our engineers’ working practices and we ask for your patience and help to keep them safe while doing their jobs. This will help to ensure we can continue to offer this critical engineering support throughout the duration of this pandemic.

While on site, we will be instigating the following changes to protocols to ensure the safety of our engineers:

  • No signing in – site contact to sign the engineer in.
  • No classroom-style inductions – inductions, if necessary, take place outside as toolbox talks, ensuring distances of over two metres from others.
  • No entry into crowded areas / areas that are heavily trafficked / areas where people loiter – the engineer is to phone and the site contact should come outside to meet him and take him around the outside of the building to the plant room. Plant room to be accessed from the nearest external door (not by walking through an occupied building, unless at the engineer’s discretion, he has our full support if he deems the risk too high). Please advise prior to the visit if you feel plant room access may be problematic.
  • No one else to be working in the vicinity / in the plant room while our engineer is there.
  • No signing out – site contact to sign the engineer out.
  • The site must provide facilities for hand-washing.

We will be requesting that agreement to the above protocols be agreed in writing prior to an engineering visit. If these allowances cannot be accommodated, we will deem the work non-essential and attendance will be rescheduled following the Government mandated ‘stay at home’ period.  Our engineer will carry out a risk assessment on arrival and if you cannot provide the stated conditions then he has been instructed to abort the job, this will incur a standard aborted visit fee.

We are sorry to have to impose conditions on our visit, but we are committed to the health of our engineers and the ability to continue to support our many customers providing key services to the nation.

We appreciate your support in these extraordinary circumstances.
