The latest addition to our video collection: Somers Town Heat Network

The new £3.4m decentralised energy scheme at Somers Town in Camden has been designed, built and installed by Vital Energi to provide both heat and power to hundreds of residents as well as businesses. The project consisted of 500m underground district heating pipework, an energy centre which contains three 1.3MW boilers with a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) engine being installed in the future. The energy centre has been retrofitted into an underground car park and the film looks at the challenges of installing the energy centre and the future capacity of this scheme.

King's Cross Mixed Use Development 

The King's Cross mixed use development consists of 50 new buildings, 2,000 new homes, 20 new streets, 10 new public squares and 67 acres attracting 45,000 people who live, work and study in the area.

The focus for energy efficiency and sustainability at King’s Cross is the on-site Energy Centre. The centre houses a Combined Heat and Power (CHP) plant. Once fully operational, the CHP plant will provide 100% of the development’s heat and hot water needs and 80% of its electricity.
