Vattenfall secures new deal to provide low carbon heating to London homes

(Climate Action, 5 May 2020) Vattenfall Heat UK has secured the right to capture heat from Cory Riverside Energy’s energy from waste facility at Belvedere, developing a heat network that could supply local households.

The new collaboration between Vattenfall and Cory Riverside Energy could initially provide heat to 10,500 homes in East London, earmarked for construction in the vicinity of Cory's site. However, the design will allow for thousands more properties to be added as they are constructed in the future, unlocking the potential for a much wider network.

Vattenfall will supply low and – ultimately - zero carbon heat to both existing properties and new developments by re-using heat that is currently being wasted. This initiative will reduce carbon emissions by 80-90% compared to using conventional gas boilers in each household.

Vattenfall will design the heat network and, if the project moves to the construction phase, lead the construction of the heat network infrastructure, operate the network, supply and look after residential and commercial customers.
