Our webinars bring the Minibems team together with innovative thinkers and companies we admire to discuss challenges faced when delivering high performance heat networks.

You can register for other editions of this webinar series where we cover a range of heat network issues:

  • Why most heat networks are inefficient
  • How to improve existing heat networks
  • Metering & billing solutions in the market
  • How to improve service to our clients and their residents
  • How to achieve decarbonised heat networks
  • Heat network modelling
  • Heat network policy and regulation

Minibems will be running these breakfast briefings on a weekly basis. For more information please follow us on LinkedIn.

Latest Webinar – No. 9 – Heat Vision 2030 – Breaking down the barriers to citywide heat network deployment.

In our second webinar from the Heat Vision 2030 project we continue to focus on the vision of city centre scale heat networks; revisiting Glasgow city centre to confront the barriers to making such an endeavour work.

Can heat networks in the U.K. really be low risk, predictable, repeatable… investable?

We look at a mix of barriers, present an initial cashflow model, followed by a  discussion with experts across the sector. All of this aided by design and visualisation software so we can all see what it looks like.

The first topic covered was – Why are most heat networks inefficient?

We looked at the symptoms of poorly performing heat networks, some of the problems include –

  • Constant temperature
  • Constant flow rate
  • Oversupply of heat
  • Lack of data on actual performance
  • High aftercare costs
