  • Heat Mapping in The Highlands
    Kenny Monteath, AECOM
    13th October 2011
  • Overview
  • Background: The Highland Heat Map
    This is a pilot project funded by Scottish Government arising out of a previous Heat Mapping exercise carried out in 2007.
    A steering group of Scottish Government, Highlands and Islands Enterprise and The Highland Council have been responsible for leading and directing the work.
    Project completed – April 2011
  • National Context
    Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009
    Scotland’s Climate Change Delivery Plan / Renewable Heat Action Plan (2009)
    • 42% reduction in carbon emissions from heating buildings 2006-2020
    • SG target of at least 11% of all heat demand to be met from renewable sources by 2020
    Scottish Zero Waste Plan
    • 70% recycling / compost by 2025
    • 5% Landfill (max)
    • 25% EFW
    • Anaerobic Digestion
    • Reduction in landfill
    • Scope for Energy from waste
    Renewable Heat Incentive (DECC)
    Oil ~ $115 per barrel
    Heating oil ~ 60p per litre
    Background: National context
  • Background: Local context
    Development Plan
    Influence policy about how development can occur sustainably
    Influence current and future proposals
    Inform investment decisions, projects and initiatives
    There are many potential stakeholders, including:
    Council functions e.g. Planning & Development, Housing & Property, Waste Management, Climate Change & Sustainability
    Developers or Property Managers of heat-demanding land uses
    Developers or Operators of sources of heat supply
    Those involved in developing or implementing incentives
  • Background: What is The Highland Heat Map?
    The “Heat Map” is a Geographic Information System (GIS) based spatial planning tool. It brings together spatial information relating to:
    • Demand – domestic, commercial and industrial heating
    • Supply issues – “waste” industrial heat, biomass fuel sources, technology providers, expertise etc.
    • Opportunities/ Constraints – locations of major energy loads, development opportunities, flood zones etc.
    Spatial information is complemented by a suite of GIS tools designed to allow interrogation and analysis of the spatial information.
    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
  • Methodology: The Highland Heat Map
    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.
    The model is mainly based upon the following key types of information:
    • Address locations
    • Energy consumption details for public buildings
    • Property details (age, type & floor area)
    • Scottish House Condition Survey (SHCS)
    Commercial & Industrial
    Commercial & Industrial Rateable Floor Areas from Highland Assessors combined with energy use benchmark data CIBSE TM46
    Significant Point Source (Existing buildings) energy consumption plotted – including THC properties, hospitals & other public buildings
    Residential data from the Corporate Address Gazetteer (CAG), the Highland Assessors & the Scottish House Condition Survey
    Data on proposed new commercial and industrial property
    Data on proposed new residential property
    Data on proposed new public buildings
  • Methodology: Constructing The Model
  • Methodology: The Highland Heat Map
    Heat Demand
    • Heat demand
    • Major energy loads
    • Fuel poverty
    Heat Supply
    • Woodfuel supply
    • Industrial heat production
    • Existing DH networks
    • Existing methane emitters
    • Fossil fuel supply
    • Gas grid coverage
    • Distilleries
    Skills/ Technology
    • Technology supply
    • Education
    Opportunities/ Constraints
    • Development proposals
    • Flood risk
    • Woodland strategy policy areas
    • Natural heritage designations
  • Functionality: Scenario Development
    The challenge:
    Understanding the impact of new/ proposed developments on heat demand within a defined area.
    The solution:
    Build a tool which allows the user to create a new Heat Map based upon future development scenarios
    Required information:
    • Development location
    • Development details
    Revised Heat Map that can be analysed further for relationship to potential sources of heat supply
  • Functionality: Scenario Development Example
    Stratton & East Seafield Development, East Inverness
    Mixed used development including residential, retail, commercial, school, health centre etc.
    Four phases
    • Phase 1A – (2011 – 2013)
    • Phase 1B – (2013 – 2015)
    • Phase 2 – (2016 – 2020)
    • Phase 3 – (2021 – 2025)
    Indicative phasing information taken from ES
  • Functionality: Scenario Development Example
    • Study Area
    • Masterplan
    • Existing Heat demand
    • Phase 1A
    • Phase 1B
    • Phase 2
    • Phase 3
    • Revised Heat demand
  • Functionality: Heat Demand Density
    The challenge:
    To identify significant clusters of heat demand in a user specified location.
    The solution:
    Calculate the density of existing heat demand
    Required information:
    • Search location and radius
    • Output settings
    Density Map of Heat Demand
  • Functionality: Heat Demand Density Example
    Identifies clusters of high heat demand & major existing energy loads
  • Summary
    This project has developed a methodology for mapping and analysing renewable heat opportunities across the Highlands.
    The methodology is:
    • Robust
    • Consistent
    • Repeatable
    • Scalable
    • Interactive
    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
