While TfL does not itself develop district heating schemes, it is committed to developing cost-effective ways to capture its waste heat so that district heating developers can make use of it.  An example of this is the project with the London Borough of Islington for the extension of its heat network at Bunhill. This extension will allow Islington Council to connect 454 homes in the area, with the potential to supply a further 1,000 homes.
