Milton Keynes Council to receive money for low carbon technology

Milton Keynes Council is one of 32 councils in the United Kingdom to receive funding for low carbon technology.

The funding received is part of a government-backed initiative to boost low carbon heating, which will be used to aid the development of new heat generating technologies.

£9.4million in total will spent by the government in total, which will see two schemes receiving backing. £7million in total will be spent as part of development in funding the creation of new heat networks technology, such as recovering industrial heat or energy from waste. The aim is to drive forward innovation by helping businesses create new technology that works more efficiently, cuts carbon emissions and cost less than existing generation.

The other £2.4million is intended to support the development of heat network projects, which is designed to provide more efficient heat to buildings and potentially lower heating bills, through the Government’s Heat Networks Delivery Unit (HNDU).

Energy and Climate Change Secretary Ed Davey said, “Recovering wasted heat from industrial plants or landfill sites means we can heat our homes and businesses more efficiently, as well as helping to drive down energy bills. Improving the way we heat our buildings and helping local authorities fund innovative and more efficient ways of supplying lower carbon heat will also reduce our dependency on costly, imported gas.”
