Green Heat Network Fund


Supporting the commercialisation of low carbon heat network projects.



The Green Heat Network Fund (GHNF) Transition Scheme supports the commercialisation of low-carbon heat network projects. It will provide funding to public, private, and third sector applicants in England to support the transition from the Heat Network Investment Project (HNIP) to the Green Heat Network Fund (GHNF) full scheme. 


Aimed at developers and investors in low-carbon heat networks, such as Shared Ground Loop Arrays, the objectives are to achieve carbon savings, increase the amount of low-carbon heat utilisation in heat networks and help prepare the market for low-carbon regulation.

Heat networks are vital to achieving a clean, cost-effective transition to net-zero, while delivering a wide variety of benefits to the environment, consumers, and the economy. They can utilise otherwise wasted energy, provide grid balancing services in an increasingly electrified heat market, and offer a low carbon supply of heat at competitive prices to households and businesses alike.

The scheme intends to help new and existing heat networks to move to low and zero-carbon technologies and run from April 2022 to September 2024.
