In recent years, government initiatives such as the Building Legislation, code for sustainable homes, BREEAM assessments have required developers to install district heating systems and CHP’s in their developments.
With the introduction of District heating systems, Developer’s /Managing Agents have the added liability for purchasing the gas and managing billing/debt recovery of the heat/hot water consumed by their residential and commercial occupiers.
