Stoke on Trent
Nordic Heat is working in partnership with the City of Stoke-on-Trent
Stoke-on-Trent is fast becoming a centre of excellence for Energy Systems Development, leading the way in the delivery of affordable energy and clean growth in the UK. A total of £500M will be invested in the city’s energy infrastructure in the next 6-7 years.
The ambition is to transform the city over the next 30 years; supporting energy, site development, skills and innovation, creating new homes and new jobs. This includes the delivery of a series of projects, notably a city-wide district heating network designed to encourage private sector investment in low carbon heat sources.
Stoke-on-Trent and the Swedish City of Helsingborg have already established a close and successful cooperation related to heat networks through Nordic Heat and the Hotspot initiatives. By expanding this partnership further through The Smart City Alliance, the aim is to make the most of economic opportunities ahead and develop new areas for innovation and education. Neighbouring cities in the region have already declared interest to become part of the Smart City Cluster taking form around Stoke-on-Trent.
