Five innovative projects will receive a share of nearly £65 million to deliver clear, low-cost heating solutions to homes and businesses across the UK.

Of the projects, the largest in the group is a plan to heat thousands of homes that are located near data centers using the energy waste produced by the building. The project will reduce energy bills and use low-carbon energy sources to help the UK reach its 2050 net zero goals.

This project, of the five, will connect 10,000 homes across 250,000 square meters of commercial space to the heating network.

Similar projects are being installed in London, Watford, Suffolk, and Lancaster as well.
