Answer for Greenwich Power station

Answered By: 
The Mayor

The GLA and TfL are working with the Royal Borough of Greenwich to assess the potential to supply low carbon, affordable heat from the power station via a district heat network. The output of this will be a decentralised energy masterplan for the Borough.

 

This work is also informing a detailed feasibility study for the power station itself which will provide TfL with a business model to determine the appropriate technology, size and cost of generation that could be installed on the site.
