Suitable development energy strategies require compliance with several key industry documents to ensure carbon targets are met and heat generation and overall efficiencies of heat networks in new developments remain suitable. London Plan requirements, SAP updated requirements, Building Regulations Part L requirements and GLA Energy Assessment guidance all need to be considered at this stage of development to allow an appropriate energy strategy to be drawn up.

FairHeat provide advice on:

  • Overall Energy Strategy through a lifecycle risk assessment of each proposed option.
  • System peak load sizing
  • Network routing strategy, to ensure efficient use of development space and avoid oversizing utility connection applications.

Techno Economic Feasibility Study (TEFS)

A broad base of commercial experience gives FairHeat a significant advantage when carrying out techno-economic feasibility studies, as FairHeat can build realistic commercial variables into the assessment of technical options from the outset. This is critical, as there is a strong interaction between technical and commercial factors and the probability of achieving a successful outcome will be compromised if these factors are not considered from the outset. It is also critical that assumptions are realistic. Unfortunately, over-estimation of likely loads often results in an overestimation of future revenues. This is too often within the context of a business model that is heavily linked to heat sales, with insufficient downside mitigation built in. FairHeat has a sufficient base of experience to both: (a) ensure the variables utilised are more accurate, based on empirical data; and (b) that the business model is structured in such a way to mitigate downside risk.
