This is an exciting opportunity to join a diverse team of Low Carbon Heat Project Managers within the Heat Network Delivery Unit (HNDU) in the Department of Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). The primary role will be to provide guidance and support to help Local Authorities and other project sponsors to investigate and develop heat network projects. You will use your expertise in relation to low carbon energy and/or heat networks to act as a critical friend and provide the relevant support to these projects during the development process. You will also support the wider aims of the heat networks team, providing support to both our capital funding and policy teams when required.
COVID: Please note that due to the restrictions of COVID-19 all members of staff are currently working from home for the forseeable future. Outside of COVID-19 restrictions, these roles are UK wide with a flexible base location of either London, Birmingham or Manchester with flexible home working arrangements (including a mix of office based working and working from home).
The Government is committed to achieving net-zero by 2050. Meeting this legal commitment will require virtually all heat in buildings to be decarbonised, and heat in industry to be reduced to close to zero carbon emissions. Presently, heat is responsible for a third of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions. Heat networks are a main pathway towards decarbonising heat. In the right circumstances, they can reduce bills, support local regeneration and can be an efficient way of reducing carbon emissions from heating. In this consultation we set out our proposals to drive forward low-carbon heat networks’ growth in a regulatory framework that protects consumers and ensures fair pricing.
The Heat Networks Delivery Unit (HNDU) was set up to provide project development funding and guidance primarily to local authorities to help them explore heat network opportunities but increasingly working with a wider range of potential project sponsors and developers. It has supported over 250 projects across 180+ local authorities, with Round 10 funding having just closed in December 2020.
In addition to the support provided by the Heat Networks Delivery Unit, BEIS have two other teams providing capital support and developing heat network policy.
BEIS have two main capital support programmes for heat networks - the Heat Networks Investment Project (HNIP) (2018-2022) and the Green Heat Networks Fund (GHNF) (2022-2025). These will provide over £1/2 bn capital investment into heat network projects over a space of 10 years. These schemes seek to increase the volume of heat networks being built, deliver carbon savings, and help create the conditions vital for a self-sustaining heat network market to develop. Key to the successful delivery of these aims is an ongoing need to ensure that heat networks that are delivered are technically, financially, and commercially optimised, are of high quality and offer high standards of service to customers with clear, reliable benefits. Projects supported by the Heat Networks Delivery Unit will form an meaningful part of the pipeline of projects coming forward for capital funding.
BEIS are supporting the development of self-sustaining market via policy and legislation. In 2020, the team outlined a series of measures to introduce legislation to the heat network market. These can be found in the 'Heat Networks: building a market framework" consultation. Later in 2020 we also announced that we'll be consulting on a Heat Network Zoning methodology in Spring 2021. HNDU provide guidance to the policy development teams working in these areas.
Accordingly HNDU are advertising for a new permanent Heat Network Project Managers to take up an exciting project support role to help meet the growing demand for the team’s services
As a Heat Network Project Manager your key responsibilities as currently envisaged are listed below, however you will also be expected to respond flexibly to changing work stream priorities both within the Heat Network Development Unit and more widely in BEIS:

• Where assigned, act as the main project lead support for local authorities in England and Wales who have secured support including: responding to email and telephone queries; signposting to appropriate supporting resources; attending key project meetings; evaluating and critiquing procurement documentation for studies and project outputs including external consultancy studies.
