My officers have made an assessment of the potential to recover low temperature heat from sewage systems and other sources for use in building heating via heat networks. The GLA study 'London's zero Carbon Energy Resource - Secondary Heat, July 2013' reports those findings. My officers continue to engage with Thames Water where project opportunities arise through activities such as Energy Master Planning.
