Full of energy – awards for local schemes
We’re delighted that Islington Council and partners have won two awards this week for innovative energy schemes, in the Decentralised Energy Awards 2021.
– Heat and Efficiency: Design Innovation, for Bunhill Energy Centre
– Integrated Energy, for the GreenSCIES consortium’s smart local energy system – the council is a leading partner in the consortium.
Congratulations to everyone involved!
Decentralised energy, or district heating, is a method of providing heating and hot water in a more cost-effective and sustainable manner, reducing fuel poverty and environmental impact, as well as improving energy security. The council is committed to promoting decentralised energy directly through its own heat networks and also by encouraging its expansion through the planning system. Bunhill Energy Centre and the GreenSCIES consortium’s activities are central to this work.
