Vattenfall Heat UK will deliver an 8MW district heating system to heat homes, schools and businesses in Barnet, with a view to removing all carbon-emitting sources from the system. Vattenfall has signed the agreement with Brent Cross South developer Argent Related to deliver the 8MW district heating system, which will be the largest of its kind in the UK. Expected to be operational from 2023, the district heating network will deliver low-carbon heat and hot water to 6,700 new homes and around half a million square metres of new office, retail and commercial space. The system will support Barnet’s proposed Brent Cross South regeneration scheme, and Vattenfall was appointed the preferred partners in early 2019. The scheme will include 8MW of heat pumps that will supply more than 80% of the required heat for the regeneration site. Other low-carbon heat sources will be sourced and Vattenfall wants to eliminate all sources of carbon emissions from the system, but no timebound target has been set in this regard.
