INTERACTIVE VIDEO: Turning Newcastle's historic buildings green is an ambitious project that comes with challenges, but also with significant rewards
Buildings are responsible for about two-thirds of Newcastle's carbon emissions, and they are a core focus of the city's decarbonisation challenges as it works to reach net zero by 2030.
Equans is collaborating with Newcastle on the ambitious goal as it works across the city to upgrade historic buildings and iconic landmarks. At the iconic Civic Centre, Equans is installing air source heat pumps to help offset about 80 per cent of the building's gas usage. Elsewhere, the Helix District Energy Scheme provides low cost and low carbon heating to a network of commercial buildings.
Join Equans at the Civic and Helix centres on their journey to make net zero happen in Newcastle, by watching the interactive video above.
