District heating for new London community at St Andrew’s Park

St Andrew's Park, Metropolitan, Vital Energi

District energy specialist Metropolitan and its partner Vital Energi, have been awarded the contract to design, build and operate the district energy network for St Andrew’s Park, the new community being built near Uxbridge in the London Borough of Hillingdon.

Greater London Authority (GLA) building regulations stipulate that the target for both domestic and non-domestic developments in London is for a 35% carbon emission reduction beyond standard building regulations.

This ambition has led to the requirement that developers should prioritise connection to existing or planned district energy networks where feasible, and the Mayor’s expectation is that localised decentralised systems, or district energy networks, will generate 25% of the heat and power used in London by 2025.

Metropolitan’s solution will provide a 30% saving on carbon emissions compared with traditional solution of generating electricity separately and providing heat from individual boilers in homes.
