Appendix B: Heat demand clusters

Appendix B: Heat demand clusters

Clusters are presented in geographical groups – these are the same geographical groups in which the stakeholder-proposed projects exist which have been expanded to include surrounding heat demand clusters.

  • Area 1. The mouth of the River Clyde where it joins the Firth of Clyde, including the west-most bank of Argyll and Bute and a portion of the north bank of Inverclyde.
  • Area 2. The widest point of the River Clyde, including the south bank of Argyll and Bute, and the north bank of Inverclyde
  • Area 3. The mid-section of the Energy Masterplan area, covering the south bank of West Dunbartonshire, the north bank of Renfrewshire, and a portion of the north and south banks of Glasgow City
  • Area 4. The beginning of the Energy Masterplan area, including the rest of the north and south banks of Glasgow City and the north and south banks of South Lanarkshire
