Highland Heat Mapping - Kenny Monteath, AECOM (http://www.aecom.com/)

  1. 1. Heat Mapping in The Highlands<br />Kenny Monteath, AECOM<br />13th October 2011<br />
  2. 2. Overview<br />Background <br />Methodology<br />Functionality<br />Summary<br />
  3. 3. Background: The Highland Heat Map<br />This is a pilot project funded by Scottish Government arising out of a previous Heat Mapping exercise carried out in 2007. <br />A steering group of Scottish Government, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and The Highland Council have been responsible for leading and directing the work.<br />Project completed – April 2011<br />
  4. 4. National Context<br />Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009<br />Scotland’s Climate Change Delivery Plan / Renewable Heat Action Plan (2009)<br /><ul><li>42% reduction in carbon emissions from heating buildings 2006-2020
  5. 5. SG target of at least 11% of all heat demand to be met from renewable sources by 2020</li></ul>Scottish Zero Waste Plan<br /><ul><li>70% recycling / compost by 2025
  6. 6. 5% Landfill (max)
  7. 7. 25% EFW
  8. 8. Anaerobic Digestion
  9. 9. Reduction in landfill
  10. 10. Scope for Energy from waste</li></ul>Renewable Heat Incentive (DECC)<br />Oil ~ $115 per barrel<br />Heating oil ~ 60p per litre<br />Background: National context<br />
  11. 11. Background: Local context<br />Development Plan<br />Influence policy about how development can occur sustainably<br />Influence current and future proposals<br />Inform investment decisions, projects and initiatives<br />There are many potential stakeholders, including:<br />Council functions e.g. Planning & Development, Housing & Property, Waste Management, Climate Change & Sustainability<br />Developers or Property Managers of heat-demanding land uses<br />Developers or Operators of sources of heat supply<br />Those involved in developing or implementing incentives<br />
  12. 12. Background: What is The Highland Heat Map?<br />The “Heat Map” is a Geographic Information System (GIS) based spatial planning tool. It brings together spatial information relating to:<br /><ul><li>Demand – domestic, commercial and industrial heating
  13. 13. Supply issues – “waste” industrial heat, biomass fuel sources, technology providers, expertise etc.
  14. 14. Opportunities/ Constraints – locations of major energy loads, development opportunities, flood zones etc.</li></ul>Spatial information is complemented by a suite of GIS tools designed to allow interrogation and analysis of the spatial information. <br />This added functionality allows the Heat Map to be used to inform the planning process by predicting the potential impacts of development scenarios and identifying suitable locations for renewable heat opportunities<br />
  15. 15. Methodology: The Highland Heat Map<br />The “Heat Map” heat demand methodology is based upon a model which calculates heat demand at an individual property level allowing the outputs to be scalable.<br />The model is mainly based upon the following key types of information:<br /><ul><li>Address locations
  16. 16. Energy consumption details for public buildings
  17. 17. Property details (age, type & floor area)
  18. 18. Scottish House Condition Survey (SHCS) </li></ul>Residential<br />Commercial & Industrial<br />Public<br />Commercial & Industrial Rateable Floor Areas from Highland Assessors combined with energy use benchmark data CIBSE TM46<br />Significant Point Source (Existing buildings) energy consumption plotted – including THC properties, hospitals & other public buildings<br />Residential data from the Corporate Address Gazetteer (CAG), the Highland Assessors & the Scottish House Condition Survey <br />Data on proposed new commercial and industrial property<br />Data on proposed new residential property<br />Data on proposed new public buildings<br />HEAT MAP<br />
  19. 19. Methodology: Constructing The Model<br />
  20. 20. Methodology: The Highland Heat Map<br />Heat Demand<br /><ul><li> Heat demand

  23. 23. Industrial heat production
  24. 24. Existing DH networks
  25. 25. Existing methane emitters
  26. 26. Fossil fuel supply
  27. 27. Gas grid coverage
  28. 28. Distilleries</li></ul>+<br />Skills/ Technology<br /><ul><li> Technology supply
  29. 29. Education</li></ul>Opportunities/ Constraints<br /><ul><li> Development proposals
  30. 30. Flood risk
  31. 31. Woodland strategy policy areas
  32. 32. Natural heritage designations</li></li></ul><li>Functionality: Scenario Development<br />Before<br />The challenge:<br />Understanding the impact of new/ proposed developments on heat demand within a defined area.<br />The solution:<br />Build a tool which allows the user to create a new Heat Map based upon future development scenarios<br />Required information:<br /><ul><li> Development location
  33. 33. Development details </li></ul>Outputs:<br />Revised Heat Map that can be analysed further for relationship to potential sources of heat supply<br />After<br />
  34. 34. Functionality: Scenario Development Example<br />Stratton & East Seafield Development, East Inverness<br />Mixed used development including residential, retail, commercial, school, health centre etc.<br />Four phases<br /><ul><li>Phase 1A – (2011 – 2013)
  35. 35. Phase 1B – (2013 – 2015)
  36. 36. Phase 2 – (2016 – 2020)
  37. 37. Phase 3 – (2021 – 2025)</li></ul>Indicative phasing information taken from ES<br />
  38. 38. Functionality: Scenario Development Example<br /><ul><li>Study Area
  39. 39. Masterplan

  43. 43. Phase 2
  44. 44. Phase 3
  45. 45. Revised Heat demand</li></li></ul><li>Functionality: Heat Demand Density<br />Before<br />The challenge:<br />To identify significant clusters of heat demand in a user specified location.<br />The solution:<br />Calculate the density of existing heat demand<br />Required information:<br /><ul><li> Search location and radius
  46. 46. Output settings </li></ul>Outputs:<br />Density Map of Heat Demand<br />After<br />
  47. 47. Functionality: Heat Demand Density Example<br />Identifies clusters of high heat demand & major existing energy loads<br />
  48. 48. Summary<br />This project has developed a methodology for mapping and analysing renewable heat opportunities across the Highlands.<br />The methodology is:<br /><ul><li> Robust
  49. 49. Consistent
  50. 50. Repeatable
  51. 51. Scalable
  52. 52. Interactive</li></ul>There is now a major opportunity to use the Heat Map and methodology to help achieve renewable heat targets at both a regional and national level by identifying realistic opportunities for District Heating <br />
