Pinnacle Power are delivering the Operation and Maintenance of the entire Bristol Heat Network on behalf of Bristol City Council. This includes all planned and reactive maintenance as well as identifying optimisation opportunities for a wide range of generation assets including CHP, Gas and Biomass Boilers as well as the recently commissioned Water Source Heat Pump in Castle Park (which upgrades heat extracted from the Bristol Harbour). Pinnacle Power will also be providing all planned and reactive maintenance of the distribution network and substations.
Councillor Kye Dudd, Cabinet Member for Climate, Ecology, Waste and Energy, said:
“The Bristol Heat Network is an integral part of our journey towards building a carbon neutral city and ensuring that we continue to play our part in addressing the climate and energy crisis.
It’s inspiring to be launching England’s largest water source heat pump – a Bristol first which will provide zero carbon heat to hundreds of new homes. The expansion of the heat network to new communities across Bristol, as part of our City Leap project, is one of the key ingredients in securing Bristol’s energy future and providing local businesses and homes with heat and energy from low carbon sources.”
We are proud to be working with Bristol City Council on this innovative scheme which has great ambitions to grow and contribute to the decarbonisation of the City. We are looking forward to seeing how the Bristol Heat Network will evolve with the recently announced City Leap project and we hope to continue to work closely with Bristol City Council and its partners as the project develops.
