Recent contracts mean that the low carbon district energy infrastructure owned and managed by Cofely in the UK will now have a capacity to deliver over 500 GWh per annum. This milestone follows recent additions to Cofely District Energy’s portfolio, including extensions to the Birmingham and Leicester schemes. It comes at a time when the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is promoting district heating as the low carbon energy solution for urban areas as part of its heat strategy framework.

Cofely District Energy CEO Simon Woodward commented: “The UK District Energy Association reports that over 14% of the UK’s heating needs could be met using low carbon district heating sources within the next 20 years. With schemes in Birmingham, Leicester, London: Greenwich, Olympic Park & Stratford City, Whitehall, Manchester and Southampton, Cofely District Energy is uniquely placed to help the UK reach its substantial potential in this market and deliver a significant proportion of this target.”
