The Heat Network Efficiency Scheme (HNES) provides funding to public, private and third sector applicants in England and Wales to support improvements to existing district heating or communal heating projects that are operating sub-optimally and resulting in poor outcomes for customers and operators.
It is a £32 million grant support programme spanning 2023 to 2024 (Year 1) and 2024 to 2025 (Year 2).
The HNES is open to organisations in the public, private or third sectors in England and Wales.
