Switch2 design, operate and maintain Wheat Quarter

Metropolitan Thames Valley Housing Association (MTVH) has appointed Switch2 Energy as ESCo partner to deliver a low carbon heat network for its new former Shredded Wheat Factory South Site housing development in the London urban satellite of Welwyn Garden City.

Under the 40-year contract Switch2 Energy will design, operate and maintain the district heating scheme, which will use high efficiency Combined Heat and Power (CHP) with the option to transition to alternative low carbon energy sources in the future. Read the full case study.

Industry recognised leaders in design

Our team is made up of some of the industry’s leading designers, chartered engineers and registered CIBSE heat network consultants. In fact, members of our team helped with the production of CIBSE ADE heat networks: Code of Practice CP1, which sets the minimum quality standards to ensure that a heat network are designed, built and operated effectively and meets client and customer expectations.

Optimise your heat networks right from the start

Our access to “big data” heat network analysis, ensures that we have the most up to date specific diversification information to ensure designs are at optimum size; avoiding capital costs and ongoing distribution costs, ultimately reducing tariffs for customers. Our experience in heat networks makes sure that a heat network by Switch2 is never oversized – we understand the pitfalls of this only too well. Read more about scheme optimisation here.
