Vattenfall expands low carbon heating scheme

Vattenfall has signed an agreement with Brent Cross South developer Argent Related to provide low carbon heating to homes, shops, and other businesses in the redevelopment scheme in Barnet, north London.

The announcement comes a few weeks after the company’s agreement to provide low carbon energy in Belvedere from Cory Riverside Energy’s waste facility. The heating network will provide low carbon heating and hot water to 6,700 new homes and three million square metres of new office, retail and commercial space as part of the proposed regeneration scheme. It will include 8MW of heat pumps, supplying over 80 per cent of the total heat requirements of the site, alongside other low and zero carbon heat. Engineers are also working on a plan to use the infrastructure to cool Brent Cross South in the summer, as well as heat it in the winter.

Expected to be operational from 2023, the scheme will be developed to its full scale over the coming decades, building on Vattenfall’s experience in constructing and operating some of Europe’s fastest growing heat networks in cities such as Amsterdam.
