District Energy

EQUANS operates some of the largest and most technically demanding District Energy schemes in the UK.

What is District Energy?

District Energy Systems have a central energy centre serving a range of buildings through a network of underground pipes and cables. These systems are widely recognised as a sustainable, cost-effective solution for the provision of heating, cooling and power for homes and businesses.

EQUANS is an expert in the provision of city-wide, smart, district energy systems. We have the capability to decarbonise whole cities by connecting and growing our existing large scale, low carbon heat networks, whilst integrating multiple, low carbon renewable technologies and waste heat sources.

The EQUANS District Energy team have over 30 years’ experience in developing, delivering, and operating large district energy networks. We are committed to working with our partners in local authorities, large organisations, and businesses on their energy transition, as well as fulfilling our ambition to make net zero-carbon happen.
