Lewisham Council - New Cross heat network feasibility study

New Cross heat network feasibility study

Lewisham Council appointed WSP | Parsons Brinckerhoff to undertake a feasibility study for a heat network supplying Goldsmiths, University of London with heat from the SELCHP waste incineration plant. 

The wider assessment consists of four elements:

  • Element A: A route optimisation study to determine the most effective route between SELCHP and Goldsmith’s College

  • Element B: A network expansion assessment to identify opportunities to establish additional connections to the network

  • Element C: A design study to identify the technical requirements of the heat network, allowing likely costs to be calculated

  • Element D​​​​​: A governance and delivery options study for the heat network.

The study used a combination of methodologies and resources to find a preferred route for the installation of district heating pipework through an area of south east London that is largely residential and industrial.

The resulting report sets out the technical feasibility of the network giving the preferred option and specification for the route with an exploration of the financial and legal governance arrangements which could be used to deliver the network.
