REHAU District Heating recently held a workshop in Birmingham, bringing delegates together from across the Midlands to find out more about the benefits and practicalities of District Heating.
Nicky Butterworth (BEIS) spoke about HNIP funding, whilst Phil Jones (CIBSE) gave a presentation on the CIBSE Code of Practice for Heat Networks, Craig Groberty (3D Technical Design Ltd) gave a short talk covering the de-risking of the civil environment and installation as well as a cost comparison between polymer and steel pipework, and REHAU’s Alexandra Ivanchuc talked briefly about innovation in heat networks.
There was also a talk from a case study, demonstrating how district heating works in practice, and the opportunity to join breakout sessions led by Laura Brealey (Bevan Brittan LLP), Martin Crane (Carbon Alternatives) and Gareth Jones (FairHeat).
Steve Richmond, REHAU’s Head of Marketing and Technical for the Building Solutions division, said: “The workshop was one of the busiest ones we’ve held yet, and this reflects a growing appetite for this efficient and innovative kind of heating system. We hope that the attendees that came on the day will have taken away a better understanding of the technology and its benefits and how they might be able to incorporate it into their next project.”
