There is an urgent need to reduce dependence on fossil fuel based energy sources and minimise carbon emissions, if the UK’s target of zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 is to be met. This dataset relates to an EPSRC and BEIS funded project to investigate the potential of low temperature waste heat (< 100°C) as a low carbon heat resource in the UK. A range of low temperature waste heat sources from industrial, commercial and geothermal sites were identified and used to estimate the total waste heat output from these sources. The results are reported in a paper entitled ‘Evaluation of low temperature waste heat as a low carbon heat resource in the UK’. It was concluded that low temperature waste heat offers the potential for a very large heat resource, which has not been widely explored to date. The dataset in this repository provides details of the individual waste heat sources used within the paper to estimate the total thermal energy output from the low temperature waste heat sources considered.

England, Wales and Northern Ireland
|Data collection method|
Information gathered from a range of sources including public domain, internet, commercial technical information, research journals, text books, other publications, industry trade magazines, trade associations and individual businesses.
|Data preparation and processing activities|
Collection of characteristic data for a range of industry, commercial and geothermal processes which generate low temperature waste heat, which is listed on spreadsheets. Application of authors' source-specific methodology to predict the total waste heat produced from these sources for each site.
This dataset was updated on 13/12/22 to correct a discrepancy between the original dataset and the dataset used in the corresponding article.
