Heat Networks: navigating the legal issues

2:00PM - 2:45PM BST

The establishment of £320M Heat Networks Investment Project by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy demonstrates the government’s enthusiasm for developing a sustainable heat network market to increase energy efficiency and deliver carbon savings.  Public and private bodies throughout the country are exploring their options for developing new networks and expanding existing networks, both with and without central government support. 

This interactive webinar brings together leading district heating experts Tom Bainbridge (Lux Nova) and Alex Kynoch (Browne Jacobson) to explore common legal issues in funding, delivering and operating district heating networks and share practical solutions to those issues. We will also discuss the HNIP and how to apply for funding. The availability of HNIP funding has seen a surge in interest in district heating projects so Tom and Alex regularly collaborate advising public and private sector bodies involved in these projects. 

The topics covered will include:

HNIP – overview of structure, eligibility and types of funding available
Project structuring to access funding
Template heat contracts developed by Lux Nova to support HNIP and the role of these documents in the market 
Public procurement and vires hurdles for Local authorities involved in DH 
State aid issues on publicly funded or managed projects 
State aid process in HNIP 
BREXIT and State aid

There will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions during the live session, but please feel free to send in any questions you may have in advance.

If you can't make our webinar please feel free to sign up and we will email a copy of the webinar recording out afterwards. A recording will also be available to watch from our LinkedIn showcase page after the live session.
