PARKdesigned are currently working on the construction information for a new energy centre in Leeds as part of one of the UK’s largest heating networks. The Recycling and Energy Recovery Facility (RERF) in east Leeds will provide a new flagship heat and hot water system to 1,983 council homes and numerous business around Leeds City Centre. By taking steam generated at the Veolia operated RERF, converting it into hot water, and distributing it along a 16.5km network of district heating pipes, the heat network will connect homes and businesses in Leeds to a new, environmentally friendly source of heating and hot water.

The new network will bring a projected cut of 22,000 tonnes in the city’s carbon dioxide emissions and help air quality around the city, whilst bringing employment opportunities and apprenticeships. The heat is scheduled to be available for Spring 2019 with all homes connected by autumn 2019.
