More than 1,350 homes, a school and two leisure centres in Islington are to benefit from a new energy centre that is harnessing waste heat from the London Underground tube network. The Bunhill 2 Energy Centre was launched today (5 March), to build on an existing Bunhill Heat and Power district heating network, launched in Islington in 2012.
