CIBSE develops checklists for heat networks

Published:  02 November, 2016

A new scheme that allows clients to hold suppliers to account over the performance of heat networks using the ‘Heat networks code of practice CP1’, produced as a joint project between CIBSE and the Association for Decentralised Energy, has been open for public consultation (with a closing date of 9 September. The client checklists have been designed to allow clients to check that their heat network has been installed to minimum standards set out in CP1 and to give them confidence that their scheme is of high quality and will provide low-cost low-carbon heat.

Phil Jones, chairman of the CIBSE CHP and district-heating group, said, ‘The code of practice on heat networks is designed to raise standards in heat-network installation and ensure that the industry helps low-carbon district heating to become a major part of the future of heat in the UK. We have introduced these checklists to give clients confidence that their networks are installed to the highest standards and with the latest guidance.’

The checklists will be trialled later this year.
