London mayor releases energy guidlines

London mayor Boris Johnson has this week laid out guidelines to support decentralised energy schemes in the capital.

The mayor’s office has published ‘The District Heating Manual for London’. The manual is a set of guidelines which aim to create a framework for a decentralised London heating network and help local planning authorities.

“The Mayor is demanding ambitious targets in the capital to create a more resilient, localised and efficient energy supply. This will ensure we meet the twin challenges of cutting carbon and being fully prepared for the demands coming from London’s predicted population boom,” said the Mayor’s environment advisor Matthew Pencharz.

Consultant Arup collaborated with the Mayor’s office to produce the guidelines.

One of the Mayor’s targets is to achieve 25% of London’s energy supply from decentralised energy schemes by 2025. Demand for electricity in the capital is expected to grow by 4% over the next decade.
