Our networks

We build bespoke network solutions designed to meet the needs of diverse communities.

Newcastle District Energy Company – supplying low carbon heat to a unique ecosystem

In 2018, Bring Energy was awarded a 40-year contract by the Regenerate Newcastle partnership to design, build and operate an energy centre at the Helix and to develop heat networks in Newcastle.

Helix is a unique, collaborative ecosystem and innovation hub for residential, business and public buildings. The partnership can be used by multiple bodies within the Newcastle upon Tyne boundary, including NHS, educational centres, housing providers and developers, and emergency services buildings.

The Helix scheme is projected to save 30,650 thousand tonnes of carbon over its lifetime and there are plans to transition the network to Net Zero Heat.

Project highlights

A unique, 24-acre collaborative ecosystem and innovation hub with residential, business, and public buildings.

The JV Partnership with Newcastle City Council is responsible for the design, construction, O&M, supply and billing and customer service.

732m2 purpose-built energy centre connected to multiple buildings at the Helix site.

The scheme has been extended to serve buildings beyond the original 5.2km of pipework at the Helix and planning is underway for further major expansions.

Birmingham District Energy Company – fulfilling local climate change strategy

The Birmingham District Energy Company is playing a pivotal role in Birmingham City Council’s climate change strategy, which aims to reduce CO2 emissions by 60% by 2027.

The scheme was conceived in 2003, and the first 25-year energy supply agreement was signed in 2006.

The overall network comprises three schemes, Broad Street, a Trigeneration (heat, power and cooling) led system, and two Eastside schemes.

The Birmingham District Energy scheme has enjoyed growth since its inception, enabling the on-going expansion of the scheme and is at the beginning of its decarbonisation journey.

Project highlights

Electricity supplies synchronised with the National Grid.

Overall, the scheme is saving over 14,000 tonnes of CO2 per annum compared to traditional systems.

East London Energy – Heating and cooling networks for East London

East London Energy (ELE) is serving multiple businesses and residential buildings across the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park and beyond. The networks are at the forefront of heat network decarbonisation and are leading the net zero transition with commercial and technological innovations.

Bring Energy designed, developed and built the infrastructure for ELE, and runs ELE as a customer-facing energy supplier to the area until 2053.

Linked to the development of the 2012 London Olympics and Paralympic Games, East London Energy is a prestigious, highly visible project.

Since launch, we have continued to grow the network, doubling its size and increasing its low carbon heat capacity.

Project highlights

End-to-end delivery, from concept to operation, with 100% responsibility, continuing to this day.

An early example of large-scale district heating, where we created innovations now in use across the industry.

The initial capital expenditure for the project was around £140m; there has been significant investment in new connections year on year.

A prestigious, highly visible project with multiple phases.
