SSE Enterprise Distributed Energy adopts White City Living heating and cooling system for 1,800 residents

SSE Enterprise Distributed Energy has signed a long-term agreement to help provide state of the art heating and cooling for 1,800 residents at the White City Living development in London.

This site will see over 1,800 residents benefit from an efficient gas combined heat and power system that will substantially reduce CO2 emissions.

SSE Enterprise Distributed Energy is working with St James (Berkeley Group) to bring the latest standards of heating and cooling systems to residents who should see their bills drop by a quarter compared with a conventional individual gas boiler heating system.

Nathan Sanders, Managing Director of SSE Enterprise Distributed Energy, said: “Congratulations to the SSE Heat Team which has landed a landmark project that we hope will enhance the quality of life for residents at White City Living as well as showing other developers how they can use Heat Networks to help decarbonise away from individual gas boilers. We are working closely with St James who designed and built the system, to provide efficient heating and cooling technology with SSE providing round the clock monitoring  and customer care.

“The UK Government’s target to become a net zero carbon economy by 2050 has renewed the focus on heat carbon intensity and Heat Networks are a crucial solution to decarbonise the sector, with expectations to go from the actual 2% deployment to about 20% in 2050. Heat is currently a major source of emissions contributing over a third of the overall UK emissions. Carbon reduction is rightly a pressing concern for so many developers, especially in London and we believe we have the solutions as we transition to a net zero world.”

The White City Living is one of the most exciting new developments in London offering over 2,300 new homes and a 5 acre park – all within less than 15 minutes of central London.
