Our Castle Park Energy Centre (being developed in partnership with Bristol City Council and Vital Energi) has been attracting interest across the country, and we were delighted to welcome Mayor Sadiq Kahn, Mayor Marvin Rees and Channel Four to the site last month.
The mayors enjoyed a tour of the Energy Centre, which will revolutionise Bristol’s energy by generating low carbon heat and hot water for nearby businesses and residents. The 3MW water source heat pump is the largest in England and will capture heat from the floating harbour to supply hot water and heating.
The Bristol Heat Network is the Council’s own network of pipes which aims to provide low carbon heat to home across the city through a network of underground pipes from a number of energy centres, including the Castle Park Energy Centre, which will reduce carbon emissions and increase efficiency. We are delighted that this Energy Centre is another way that Bristol City Council is leading by example in the action against climate change.
