Zeroth Energy System and district heat networks

The tightening timescales for reaching the 2050 net-zero carbon target require us to accelerate our efforts at the decarbonisation of heat. Ambient loop systems, such as the Zeroth Energy System, are being increasingly specified for multi-occupancy developments due to their high efficiency and capability to reduce a building’s CO2 emissions.This raises the question: can the Zeroth Energy System be specified in a district heating priority area, and can it connect to the district heating network?
