We guide clients through the entire process of developing and implementing district energy solutions, providing a range of design, technical and advisory services.

Arup has a strong track record in advising investors, developers, and policymakers on the strategic, commercial, and technical case for developing and investing in district heating and cooling networks. We have worked with local government on many projects in both a technical and commercial advisory capacity.  

Our multidisciplinary expertise traverses all elements of district energy, including combined heating and power, district heating and cooling, waste heat, ground and air source heat pumps, biomass, low temperature heat and building retrofit.

We are adept at mapping decarbonisation pathways, helping clients’ secure funding and investment, developing feasibility studies, and performing technical due diligence. Our clients range from university campuses to some of the largest cities in the world, and we help all of which implement future proof solutions that focus on long term sustainability, expansion and financing.
