IPA Advisory Limited a leading independent advisory practice

District Heating & Cooling

IPA has developed particular expertise in District Energy, covering both District Cooling and District Heating. This expertise has been focussed on advising government entities on the development of policy and the creation of a regulatory framework which not only facilitates the development of the sector but also encourages the expansion of district energy service provision.

Our services have covered the evaluation of the benefits associated with district energy projects, the assessment of constraints to the expansion of service provision and the creation of strategies to overcome those constraints, in particular through the development of contractual structures which allocate risk to those best able to manage it. We have also developed targeted Action Plans aimed at achieving the greatest expansion of service provision in the most cost-effective manner, highlighting the actions required of government entities and other stakeholders.
