This event forms part of the RTPI Online Events 2020 series and is brought to you by RTPI Central Scotland Chapter.

Stirling Council recently commissioned a local heat network to serve Forthside, a key regeneration area near the city centre. Currently serving a number of institutional users it will progressively provide heat to new buildings within a wider master-planned mixed use development, a key component of the Stirling/Clackmannanshire City Region deal.

The presentation will provide an overview of heat networks from a planning perspective, touching on technical aspects, current national policy context, European perspectives and emerging Scottish Government legislation and policy aspirations. The Forthside project will then be examined in more detail - initiation, installation, commissioning and operation.
