Enfield district heating project launched

Heat produced by an energy-from-waste facility in north London will be used to provide hot water to homes across the Lee Valley.

As part of the Lee Valley Heat Network, a project launched by the Mayor of London and Enfield Council, the North London Waste Authority’s plant at the Edmonton EcoPark will be integrated in a heat district system.

The first phase of the project will focus on Enfield Council’s Meridian Water development.

Enfield Council’s cabinet member for economic development Alan Sitkin said: “This is a hugely ambitious scheme which could provide heating to over 6,000 homes and businesses across the Lee Valley in its first phase.”

Matthew Pencharz, the Mayor of London’s energy and environment advisor, said: “These important energy plans are part of major regeneration work set to transform the Lee Valley area.

“We need to do everything possible to create a more secure, cost-effective and sustainable heat and power supply across London.”
