The Engineer Collaborate to Innovate awards BEN project

The Balanced Energy Network (BEN) Project is announced as winner of the Engineer ‘Collaborate to Innovate’ Awards 2018 in the Energy and Environment category.

Balanced Energy Networks are designed to provide a more cost effective, flexible, and scalable alternative to conventional district heating networks. They transfer warmth via piping circuits between buildings at near ground temperature and extract it via heat pumps in each building.

The BEN project, led by ICAX, integrates heat pumps, heat networks, thermal energy storage and Demand Side Management, providing a solution to two of the most pressing problems now facing engineers:

  • How to reduce carbon emissions for heating
  • How to reduce NO2 emissions from heating in city centres.

Mixergy Ltd are proud to be collaborating partners in the BEN project alongside London South Bank University with ICAX Ltd, TFGI, Upside Energy, Origen Power and Cranfield University.
