North London granted low carbon heat through funding: 2 main extensions of a community heat network throughout N London have been given £24 million in funding through the government’s Heat Networks Investment Project.
The extensions of the community heat network are expected to permit the supply of low carbon heat to over 50,000 homes.
The extensions are created to connect together as well as decarbonise all current heat networks in North London by linking them to the forthcoming Meridian Water energy centre at Edmonton Eco Park.
The energy centre will join to the North London Waste Authority Recovery Facility, carrying low carbon waste heat to customers by way of a network of underground district heating pipes.
The heat network is built by Energetik and owned by Enfield Council.
Energy Minister Lord Callanan stated: “Changing how we heat homes & workplaces is a vital part of how we will end our contribution to climate change, which is why we’re investing in cutting edge low carbon heating technologies to help us meet our bold climate targets.”
Jayne Clare, Managing Director at Energetik, added: “This funding decision is extremely positive for Enfield & our company. The expansion of our low carbon heat networks will provide the required infrastructure to unlock untapped potential & deliver maximum carbon savings across the borough.”
