About us

Metropolitan – the ideal district heat partner

We’ve been in the heat business since 2006 and have built a team of experts to deliver and manage our district heat networks. At Metropolitan, we offer district heat as a stand-alone or as part of a complete multi-utility package for new housing and mixed-use developments throughout the UK. Heat-source agnostic, district heat is the ultimate future-proof means of heating new homes and businesses to meet the latest planning regulations to achieve future net zero. All the utilities a development requires – district heat, electricity, water, wastewater and gigabit fibre – designed, installed, owned and operated by a single supplier: Metropolitan. Our projects speak for themselves.
