Vital Energy 2014 Commonwealth Games

Vital Energi 2014 Commonwealth Games

Vital Energi will open its doors and show how they designed and installed the award-winning community heating system for the 2014 Commonwealth Games’ Athlete’s Village. Vital Energi have constructed its bespoke low carbon energy system which comprises modern Combined Heat & Power (CHP) technology housed in a purpose built new energy centre building.
This delivers all the heating and hot water for the development through a 28km buried network of pre-insulated pipes which connect the 704 homes in the Athletes Village, as well as the Sir Chris Hoy Velodrome.
Attendees will get a presentation on the project, the opportunity to meet Vital Energi’s experts and Glasgow city representatives will explain future plans for the Heat Network’s growth and Glasgow City plans as well as an overview of the Sustainable Glasgow Target of reducing carbon by 30% across the city.
