The Heat Network Delivery Unit (HNDU) was established by the Government to provide grant funding and guidance to local authorities in England and Wales to help overcome the barriers to heat network deployment.
The HNDU is staffed by experts, who have gained experience developing heat networks outside the civil service working on technical or commercial aspects of heat networks for consultancies or local authorities. HNDU can provide support through a number of stages including: heat mapping, energy master planning, feasibility study and detailed project development.
Since its inception in September 2013 the Unit has awarded support to 180 unique projects across 115 local authorities including £9.7 million of grant funding through 6 rounds of bidding.
