E.ON to expand heat network

E.ON has announced plans to invest in expanding Sheffield's Don Valley heat network by an additional ten kilometres, utilising biomass and waste heat sources

E.ON has revealed plans for an investment to expand its district heating network in Sheffield’s Don Valley area.

The proposal includes extending the current eight-kilometre heating network by another ten kilometres, aiming to connect more homes and businesses to a low carbon heating source.

The existing network in the Lower Don Valley is powered by E.ON’s Blackburn Meadows energy plant, which uses biomass to provide heating.

The planned expansion will connect new customers, delivering efficient and cost effective heating solutions.

Chris Lovatt, Chief Operating Officer for E.ON’s Energy Infrastructure Solutions business, said: “Whether it’s combating the climate crisis, cleaning the air in city streets, or weaning the UK off fossil fuels to avoid the impact of volatile global gas markets, we need to find new, cleaner ways of heating our homes and businesses.

“Heat networks like ours in the Lower Don Valley allow us to do that.”
