Power duo to create London district heating scheme

Networks firm Metropolitan and power giant Eon will provide a district heating system for the next phase of the Greenwich Millennium Village development in London.

Eon will own and operate an energy centre to supply Metropolitan infrastructure to heat 1,743 houses, which wil be built over the next eight years.

The district heating network will help developer GMVL comply with a planning requirement to reduce carbon emissions.

Metropolitan is already contracted to provide the electricity, water, sewage and fibre networks to the site.

“We are delighted to be chosen to deliver all the utility networks at GMVL,” said Metropolitan director John Marsh.

“There is a growing interest in heat networks for new developments to help deliver the 2016 zero-carbon target. 

“It is exciting when we integrate the heat network with all of the utility networks to deliver a one-stop-shop.”
