LOW CARBON HOT WATER IN THE WORKS FOR LIVERPOOL WATERS
Peel Energy, the low carbon energy arm of Peel Land and Property, has announced plans to develop a low carbon hot water network at its ambitious Liverpool Waters development, under the name of Mersey Heat.
The heat network will deliver low carbon hot water for the use of space heating and hot water provision within the buildings and the first phase will centre on existing buildings around Princes Dock, along with planned new developments along the waterfront .
Peel Energy will operate the network through an energy services company called Mersey Heat, which will be responsible for system design, construction of the generation plant and operation of the network, providing low cost, low carbon reliable heat to the building owners and occupiers.
“We believe that Mersey Heat can make a significant positive impact on the low carbon credentials….”
Muir Miller, Managing Director of Peel Energy, which also developed the wind turbines at Port of Liverpool said: “Our colleagues and their development partners are producing a first-rate product at Liverpool Waters and it deserves a 21st century heating system to match.
“We believe that Mersey Heat can make a significant positive impact on the low carbon credentials of the project and provide cost benefits to developers and occupiers as well. We are very excited at the prospect of deploying the first phase of the network and seeing how far it can grow.”
Development at Liverpool Waters will enjoy the benefits of a low cost, reliable heating and hot water solution for the buildings by connecting to the network, which will also have long term cost benefits for occupiers.
