Information about heat networks and Energy Bill support schemes.
A heat network is where one heating source provides heating and/or hot water to a number of different homes. This could be a communal boiler in the basement of a building which supplies a number of customers within that building. It could also be a central energy source which supplies customers in more than one building.
Usually, the owner occupier or tenant of each home will pay a fee for the heat used to the manager of the heat network. If your home is heated via a heat network, you might be paying your heating bills to a management company or housing association. This might be as part of your rent or a separate charge.
Heat network managers usually purchase the energy needed via commercial/non-domestic contracts.
