District Heating

Where a project is connected to a district heating system which is outside the scope of the project or the wider development (for exampleΒ phased developments) and is mandated by a local authority or other statutory body,Β the system does not need to be included in the assessment and 11 credits can be awarded by default. This is on theΒ basis that the development’s design team do not have control over the specification of the system. Where this is the case, evidence must be provided to demonstrate this. Where the development’s design teamΒ do have control over the specification of the system, then it must be assessed.
