We’ve supported all London boroughs to develop heat maps, and helped create 12 energy masterplans for different areas of London.
We want London to have a sustainable, secure, cost-effective and low carbon energy supply.
To help realise our ambition we have created heat maps across London which look at opportunities for heating developments in new ways. As well as this we have created 13 energy master plans plus a few others are currently under development. These plans look at energy supply and demand alongside the potential for district heating and combined heat and power.
The evidence base of these plans will be used in development planning documents and will help us deliver against our energy targets. We estimate that our energy master plans and our low carbon projects will catalyse a £5-7 billion investment between now and 2025.
In 2011 an Energy Masterplannning Manual was produced by Ove Arup and Partners as part of a commission from the London Borough of Haringey under the DECC funded Local Carbon Frameworks Programme, with support and extensive input from the Greater London Authority, the London Development Agency and the London boroughs of Haringey, Islington and Waltham Forest. The Manual has been designed to produce guidance to Local Authorities on producing Energy Masterplans and is available to download here.
