We’re currently investigating a range of options to generate heat for the EEN.  Our preferred approach is to take latent heat from the river or the canal and boost that to the required temperatures using a Water Source Heat Pump.

We’re also looking at other options for low carbon heat, including capturing and utilising waste heat from industrial processes or power generation.

As we look to further decarbonise the network we’ll be considering other sources of heat such as geothermal, renewable gas, hydrogen, or e-boilers.
