Cost analysis of future heat options

Research by Element Energy analyses different models and scenarios for future heat generation

Published: Updated: Tagged: Energy & Waste

This model and input scenarios generate many of the results presented in the report Cost analysis of future heat infrastructure options. The report was produced by Element Energy Limited and E4Tech and published alongside the Commission’s National Infrastructure Assessment.
The model and input scenarios were produced by Element Energy for the Commission and are published here with their permission. A compressed .zip file, downloadable here, contains the following files:
