Midlothian Council and Swedish energy giant Vattenfall have formed a 50:50 joint venture that will see the development of a low carbon heating network in the region.
The £20 million district heating network, which will provide heating to new homes at the Shawfair development in Scotland, is expected to help reduce carbon emissions by 75% compared to conventional gas boiler systems.
The heat feeding the network will be sourced from waste heat produced by FCC’s Millerhill waste and recycling plant and will be fed through a network of pipes to local homes.
