Notting Hill housing association and Countryside Properties in London working with E.ON are to build a CHP district heating plant after an Energy Services Company (ESCO) commercial agreement was signed by E.ON’s Sustainable Energy business.
A flagship low carbon community of 335 new build homes is to be built by Notting Hill housing association and E.ON has been charged with installing, managing and maintaining the delivery of heating and hot water to the homes, which are now being built as part of the regeneration of Barham Park estate in Sudbury, London Borough of Brent.
Link2portal reports that a gas-fired combined heat and power (CHP) community energy centre will deliver the heat through a district heating network, removing the reliance on individual gas boilers within each property. The electricity generated by the plant will also serve the estate.
This results in carbon, energy and price savings, meaning that residents of the redeveloped Barham Park estate can expect savings of up to 25 per cent on lifetime heating and hot water costs.
Jeremy Bungey, head of community energy at E.ON, said: “We are delighted to be working with Notting Hill housing association and Countryside Properties to help transform Barham Park into a leading example of an energy efficient community.
