The Leeds PIPES district heat network, which will benefit from £4 million from Growth Deal funding, will bring low carbon, lower cost heating and hot water to the city of Leeds, while also cutting 22,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year
The Leeds PIPES Network, part-funded by the Growth Deal, will bring low carbon, lower cost heating and hot water to the city of Leeds, while also cutting 22,000 tonnes of carbon emissions every year.
The ‘PIPES’ programme uses super-insulated steel pipes to connect the Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility (RERF) in the Aire Valley to customers across the City of Leeds. Heat will be extracted from the centre as steam which will then be used to transfer heat to the heat network and into people’s homes.
Council housing tenants will be the first to benefit as we continue work to make the City Region a resilient zero carbon energy economy.
