Hull to consider next phase of green energy projects

Hull City Council’s cabinet will consider whether to progress to the next phase of two of its green energy projects.

The cabinet will hear plans on both Hull District Heat Network (HDHN) and the decarbonisation of corporate buildings.

Plans for HDHN include progressing with procurement activity associated with the delivery of Phase 1 of the network, which includes connections to Great Thornton Street and Cambridge Street flats as well as internal upgrades to heating systems.

Permission will also be sought to progress the feasibility of Phase 2 of the network, focusing on additional social housing sites to the south of Anlaby Road, at Albert Avenue Pools and any other viable connections on route.

Cabinet will also consider the delivery of decarbonisation initiatives to the Treasury building, Streetlife Museum and Western Library and whether to procure a number of these activities through a Strategic Partnering Agreement with the Clear Futures Framework.

If approved, procurement to complete the decarbonisation measures will progress during 2024, with a further report submitted to cabinet later this year to consider whether to progress with the construction activity.

This is with a view to commencing on site in early 2025.

These projects support to the council’s commitment to decarbonisation and achieving carbon neutrality and net zero.
