Cash For Low Carbon Heat Networks March 31st, 2014 jmr jmr Latest News Shares Comments Sefton Council, with support from the Liverpool City Region Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), has been successful in securing funding from the Government’s newly created Heat Network Delivery Unit (HNDU). Funding of £40K has been allocated to enable Sefton Council, in partnership with One Vision Housing, to carry out a heat network feasibility study in the Bootle area. Cllr Trish Hardy, Cabinet Member for Communities and Environment, said: “We are delighted that we have been successful in securing the DECC Heat Network funding with the support of the LEP. “The funding will support an initial feasibility study for providing a heat network in an area of Bootle, which we will do in partnership with One Vision Housing. “This supports our long term goal of reducing CO2 emissions as well as addressing issues of fuel poverty and securing local investment.” Sefton is one of 24 local authorities across England and Wales who have been awarded more than £2.1 million to support the development of heat network projects. Each project is designed to provide more efficient heating to buildings which can help to drive down consumers’ heating bills and reduce emissions. The funding announcement, which has been allocated by the Heat Network Delivery Unit within the Department of Energy and Climate Change, will be used to provide technical support and commercial guidance for the development of large ‘district’ scale energy networks.
