Answered By: 
The Mayor

I will be supporting the growth of decentralised energy projects, most of which will incorporate district heating networks, through my new £3.5m development support programme. The programme will operate until the end of September 2019 and will provide expert strategic, technical, commercial and financial advisory services from a new consultancy framework, The framework is currently being procured and will be available from September 2016.

The Licence Lite project will also help decentralised energy schemes access a better market price for their current wholesale electricity price that will improve the business case for decentralised energy projects.
