FM service delivery leads to district heating agreement

18 May 2016

Cheshire East Council has announced it will form a joint venture with Engie (formerly Cofely GDF Suez) to promote eco-efficient district heating networks in the area.

The new flagship company aims to build on the strong working relationship established through the company's delivery of FM services to the council.

This will see opportunities for district heating networks further explored throughout East Cheshire focusing on low and zero carbon heat sources, including geothermal energy.

As a result, residents and businesses in the area will benefit from cleaner, more affordable and secure energy, in accordance with the council's aims of delivering a low carbon economy.

Engie will undertake all feasibility studies, engineering and construction services, in addition to providing consultancy for the design and delivery of renewable energy projects.

Using the expertise of its Storengy business, which operates a natural gas storage facility in Stublach, Cheshire, the company will assess and maximise the potential of geothermal heat sources to deliver a base load of low carbon energy.

Engie will also draw from its experience in the development of the deep geothermal well in Southampton, which it has run for the last 30 years and is an essential element of the Southampton District Energy Scheme.
