New London Architecture



GreenSCIES will deliver a community-led design for a smart energy system that integrates new low carbon energy technologies and innovative public realm design to provide heat, power and mobility.
Zero Carbon London

Zero Carbon London

→ 80% reduction of carbon emissions over conventional systems for 2,500 urban residents and local businesses
→ Installation of sustainable energy centres at 42 buildings connected by 7.5km of pipework over a 5.2 km2 area
→ Approximate maximum of potential photovoltaics of – 9000 kWp

GreenSCIES will develop a new generation Smart Local Energy System in Islington, reducing energy bills, saving carbon for local businesses and residents, and contributing to the Borough’s 2030 net-zero carbon target. GreenSCIES will also improve air quality, reduce fuel poverty, support individual energy use reduction and provide strategic public realm improvements, increasing biodiversity and access to nature. The network will deliver heating, cooling, power and e-mobility charging powered by renewable energy and waste heat, sourced from the local area. This recovered heat will be transferred through ambient loop pipework and then upgraded by heat pumps at local energy hubs.
