Answered By:

The study cost £82,500. Among the actions being taken forward are:

       The development of the identified project opportunities through my Decentralised Energy Project Delivery Unit, supporting inward investment into a low carbon, affordable and resilient energy infrastructure in London

       Developing projects that could be supported via European funding streams in a manner similar to the CELCIUS project in Islington

       Embedding the findings in my Decentralised Energy Manual for London

       Using the findings to influence Government in its design of heat incentive mechanisms, the implementation of the EU Energy Efficiency Directive and its over-arching heat policy

       Using the findings to inform future iterations of the London Plan and associated GLA and borough infrastructure plans

       Using the findings to develop a pathway for the long-term utilisation of heat networks in a way that utilises London's low carbon resources and zero NOx fuels
