A district heat network scheme which is being supported by the LEP’s Energy Accelerator is a step closer
to being built in Bradford city centre. Published on Thursday 6 February, the £14.5mn scheme was
supported by members of Bradford Council’s Executive on Tuesday 4 February and will now progress to
the next development stage, which will see the development of a low carbon energy centre which will
provide heat and electricity from biomass and gas to public buildings, including St George’s Hall and
Bradford Combined Courts Centre. The scheme will potentially save 12,640 tonnes of carbon from being
released into the atmosphere and support Leeds City Region and Bradford Council’s ambitions to reach net
zero carbon by 2038.
