Our range of low carbon solutions include:

  • Community Heating
  • ESCOs
  • Supplementary sustainable technologies

Community Heating
For low carbon solutions to heat whole communities

Community Heating provides low carbon and renewable heat. It uses very efficient boilers or engines in a central energy centre to generate enough heat for the whole community. This is then distributed to individual homes through a network of heating pipes.


Metropolitan designs, builds and operates low carbon energy solutions for whole communities from inner city development to suburban housing. These are based on District Heat Networks with centralised Energy Centres and using Combined Heat & Power (CHP), gas and biomass boilers.


We deliver integrated utility networks and excellent customer service. From the early development stages of an energy strategy through to final network installation, customers benefit greatly from the professional insight of dedicated project manager.

Energy Service Company (ESCo)
For fair energy prices, secure supply and carbon compliance.

An Energy Service Company (ESCo) can be created to produce, supply and manage the local delivery of de-centralised energy to the whole development.

Metropolitan's flexible approach to management and partnering means our ESCo model can take on different forms to suit the needs of the site and its individual stakeholders. We can provide a fully managed ESCo as part of our zero carbon energy solution, including capital investment and the provision of metering and billing services. Alternatively we can become a partner in a long-term joint venture, working alongside developers and others as required.

All models include self-regulation to provide homeowners with the added peace of mind that their home is heated sustainably and - better still - that they will always pay a fair price for the service.

Supplementary Solutions

Our networks support supplementary sustainable technologies such as roof-mounted wind turbines, photovoltaics, ground surface heat pumps and solar thermal systems.
