Newcastle City Council has teamed up with ENGIE to form a joint venture to develop and operate district energy schemes over a 40-year period. The first district energy scheme to be delivered under the partnership is at the Newcastle Helix urban regeneration scheme – a high-profile, large scale, city-centre development by Newcastle City Council, Newcastle University and Legal & General. The scheme is now under construction by ENGIE on behalf of the partnership. Using a low carbon and cost-effective energy solution, applying natural gas-fired CHP (Combined Heat and Power), the energy system will provide, via a network of pipes, all businesses and homes on the landmark scheme with affordable heat. Additionally, chilled water and a private wire electricity network will provide cooling and electricity to the non-residential customers.
