£13m 'zero carbon' school contract

London Borough of Islington has tendered a £13m contract to create one of the first ever 'zero carbon' schools in the UK. The project at Crouch Hill Community Park, which starts in late February, will involve new accommodation for a primary school and a nursery, a community energy centre and a refurbished building for a youth centre. The development will have a carbon negative footprint when in use, it has been said. This will be achieved by the school sharing heat distribution from the new energy centre with an adjacent housing development.

The energy centre will use a biomass boiler and gas fired combined heat and power unit to provide the school's heat and power needs. The school is expected to achieve a BREEAM rating of "outstanding" and it will be completed in summer of 2012.

The UK CHP Development Tool is the latest version of the map, originally developed as a tool aimed at assisting power station developers consider the opportunities for supplying heat and development of combined heat and power (CHP) as required under planning policy. However, it can also be used by both small and large organisations to help identify the locations where the supply of CHP heat would have the greatest potential, and therefore the largest positive environmental impact.
