Our Heat division specialises in the design, construction ownership and operation of
heat and cooling infrastructure to serve your development. We can assist you with
investment, carbon reduction and renewable energy targets for your development.
At the heart of our offer is the District Heating Network. This delivers heat to
customers safely and efficiently. Crucially, this distribution network enables us
to select the most appropriate energy source, meeting the relevant planning,
commercial or technical drivers for the scheme. It also enables replacement
technologies (such as fuel cells) to be installed in the future.
Our 365/24/7 cover, regular programmed inspection, maintenance and safety works
ensure assets are properly maintained to maximise their lifespan and provide reliable
service for our customers.
We can offer a range of technology options including Combined Heat and Power
(CHP), Biomass Boilers, Heat Pumps, Solar Thermal and Solar PV tailored to meet
the specific requirements of your scheme.
We will work with you to determine the most appropriate technology, or mix of
technologies, to employ to meet your key drivers.
We can offer significant capital investment into the scheme. We will work with you in
an open and transparent way to develop our investment proposals.
As the ESCo provider for the scheme, typically SSE takes on a number of key risks
which would otherwise lie with the client. These include energy price fluctuations,
plant failure and as part of our award winning customer service, customer debt.
Our heat and cooling customers are looked after by a dedicated heat customer team
which is part of our UK based customer services business. Our customers benefit
from our guaranteed standards of performance (which mirror those customers would
expect of a regulated, licensed supplier), benchmarked charges for and our award
winning customer service, including “Best Overall Energy Supplier” in the uSwitch
satisfaction reports for 7 consecutive years.
We have an ever increasing portfolio of schemes with private developers and
housing associations and a growing reputation for our open and transparent
approach and our ability to deliver.
