Understand the basics of heat networks, including how to design and assess their feasibility, with funded training from GTEC.
Heat networks, or district heating systems, are set to become of key part of the UK’s heating infrastructure,
providing a sustainable solution for new build estates and city centre locations where the installation of
individual heat pumps is not practical.
Currently, around 2% of heat demand is provided through heat networks, but the government expects that
close to a fifth of national requirement for low carbon heat could be met by district heating solutions by
2050. Consequently, there is huge need for workers across the heat networks supply chain, including
designers, installers, specifiers and office-based staff.
Online funded Heat Network Design & Feasibility training
GTEC has been awarded funding from the Department of Energy, Sustainability & Net Zero and will be
offering discounted online training in the basics of heat networks, their design and feasibility for various
