Gemserv to work alongside BEIS to deliver the Green Heat Network Fund (GHNF)

9th Mar, 2022

Part of the Triple Point Heat Networks Investment Management group, Gemserv will play a key role in the delivery of a new £288 million grant funding programme to enable the decarbonisation of new and existing heat networks.  

The aim is to invigorate the transition to low carbon technologies including heat pumps, solar and geothermal sources and help homes and businesses across England to benefit from greener heating.  

As part of the delivery team, Gemserv will be responsible for data processing and reporting, engaging stakeholders and ensuring a smooth application journey for public, private and third sector projects seeking to access funding support.  

Made up of six organisations including Gemserv, Triple Point Heat Networks Investment Management first came together in 2018 when it was appointed by BEIS to deliver its flagship Heat Networks Investment Project (HNIP). The group has since awarded over £250 million of HNIP funding in the way of grants and loans to heat networks schemes in England and Walesi, supporting the aims of the initiative to increase the number of heat networks and create the conditions for sustainable market long term.  

Drawing on the experience gained over the last four years, the delivery partner group is delighted to have been re-appointed as BEIS’ delivery partner and to be supporting the next important step in the Government’s heat networks transformation plan.  

Gemserv was also appointed by BEIS as its Delivery Partner for the Heat Network Efficiency Scheme Demonstrator in October 2021, with GHNF marking the third heat network funding programme it will support.   

James Higgins, Partner at Gemserv, said:  

“Gemserv is delighted to be a part of the delivery partner group for the Green Heat Network Fund. The transformation of the UK’s heat network market is a key part of the transition to net zero and whilst it has been a pleasure to have played a part in the journey so far, we know the real work is only just beginning. We’re looking forward to inviting projects to apply for support.”       

The scheme will open for applications on 14th March 2022 and is anticipated to run to 2025.
