Hyde Farm district heating study

 5 March 2012

Carbon Descent has been instructed by Hyde Farm Climate Action Network (CAN) to assess the feasibility of CHP and a community heating network for the Hyde Farm area of Lambeth.

As Hyde Farm is a solid walled conservation area, this limits the opportunities for fabric improvements. CHP and district heating provides an alternative way of decarbonising heating and hot water use.

We were chosen by the Hyde Farm CAN as we have over 12 years’ experience in the field of carbon reduction projects ranging from strategy work to feasibility to on the ground community engagement. Joining us is Willaim Orchard of Orchard Partners, who will be overseeing the techincal and engineering aspects of the project.

The funding for this programme has been provided by The Local Energy Assessment Fund, administered by EST, which supports communities across England and Wales to play an active role in the development of a low carbon society where energy supply is both secure and affordable. The fund resources work by community groups to understand their potential for improvements in energy efficiency and local deployment of renewable energy.

"The audits and the final reports from Carbon Descent were spot on and have given businesses a real road map to follow if they want to reduce their energy consumption over the next year."
