Midlothian Council are exploring the opportunity for an innovative District Heating Network scheme, taking otherwise waste heat from a newly built 20MW EfW facility located within its own council area and delivering it to local customers; principally the new Shawfair development of up to 4000 new homes and associated properties
Using the skills, expertise and experience of the team, Ener-Vate assisted the client in the full development of the scheme. Taking the previously completed feasibility study, Ener-Vate analysed its assumptions and recommendations and liaised with both the main stakeholders to agree initial heads of Terms for Heat purchase and Supply suitable for all parties. Ener-Vate then led on the Market Engagement with 6 major UK suppliers to gauge their interest in providing services to the scheme and/or becoming an investor partner.
