What sort of building projects are most suitable for shared heating?

Any shared heating scheme is centred around the concept of a site utilising one large heat source running very efficiently, rather than each building or property having separate smaller ones running less efficiently – the idea being to reduce overall CO2emissions, increase efficiency and save on running costs. When we think about shared heating schemes there are two types of application that spring to mind; firstly district heating where you have several buildings connected to a single heat source via underground pipes; and the second one being centralised plants within a single building supplying multiple properties within.

Underground pre-insulated pipes are used to connect the renewable heat source to one or more buildings on the site. The pre-insulated pipes are designed to maintain the water temperature when in transit (avoiding heat losses to improve energy efficiency). At Mibec we
