Lewisham Council - North Lewisham heat network feasibility study

North Lewisham heat network feasibility study

We appointed WSP to undertake a feasibility study for a heat network supplying new and existing buildings in the north of the borough with heat from the SELCHP waste incineration plant.

The feasibility study consists of three elements:

  • Element A: A route study to determine the best route between SELCHP and development sites in the north of the borough and any risks and costs associated with that route.
  • Element B: A design study that identifies the technical requirements of the potential heat network to allow likely costs to be calculated.
  • Element C: A delivery study that calculates the cost and carbon savings and delivers an assessment of financial viability.

The study has identified a preferred route for the installation of heating pipework through a part of south east London. The route has a range of constraints arising from the existing infrastructure, transport routes and buildings in the area.

The feasibility study then provides a specification for the route with an exploration of the cost and carbon implications of the proposal.
