Executive summary

In November 2011 we submitted DD647 and it asked for approval to submit, with our consortium members, funding applications into the European Commission’s Framework Programme 7 Call to support delivery of priority programmes within the Mayor’s Climate Change Mitigation and Energy Strategy.

The CELSIUS project, is a decentralised energy and large-scale district heating demonstrator project, was successful in its application and scored top out of all the applications in the Call. The project was subsequently invited by the European Commission to go through to the negotiations phase of the applications process.

Approval is now being sought for the GLA element of the proposed project so that the GLA can enter into contract negotiations, alongside its London partners and fellow consortium members. The aim being for the CELSIUS project, and its consortium members, to enter into a Grant Agreement with the European Commission to deliver this exciting and innovative demonstration project.
