Heat networks zoning: preparing for future regulation

24 January 2024

This webinar was a chance for members to engage directly with Department for Energy Security and Net Zero (DESNZ) and input into the new regulatory framework for heat networks consultation.

With the new regulatory framework for heat networks due to come into force from 2024, we heard directly from the DESNZ about heat network zoning.  

This was the second in a series of DESNZ and Ofgem consultations focused on the upcoming regulations. During this webinar, DESNZ outlined their proposals for heat network zoning, how housing associations will be affected by these proposals, and how the sector can prepare for the incoming regulations.

It was an opportunity for NHF members to feedback about the proposals and to feed into the government’s policy as they develop their proposals on heat network zoning.
