The UK District Energy Vanguards Network is hosting a free one-day workshop in Leeds on Wednesday 24th January 2018 that will provide a platform of expert speakers to address key areas to consider in building a business case. The event is specifically designed for local authorities and other public sector bodies developing district heating networks.
A robust business case is the essential cornerstone to the development of a heat network project. It will need to be built on a detailed technical evaluation and credible commercial structure, and meet the strategic objectives of your key decision makers. Investors, both public and private, will want to see a sound financial plan that is conservative in its assumptions, has been tested against potential risks, and will provide them with a return on capital.
