Veolia is now advancing sustainability for London’s new communities by delivering low carbon energy, through district heating, for the Cannon Road development in Haringey. By managing energy efficient heating and hot water from the new combined heat and power (CHP) based scheme it will save around 6000 tonnes of CO2. The success of this development was recently recognised by winning the Best Social or Affordable New Housing Development Award in the Building Excellence Awards 2016.
Part of the wider regeneration of North Tottenham, London, this development is being delivered by the 8000-home Newlon Housing Trust. As part of the energy management contract, Veolia delivers low carbon affordable heat to the homes located in four modern blocks and a 22-storey tower, together with a new 420- pupil school serving reception and primary school children, which was also named as a finalist for Best Educational Building.
Designed to help foster the new community the development includes a variety of different properties available for shared ownership, social rent and intermediate rent, which provides affordable accommodation for key workers. Under the contract Veolia manages the energy delivery to the residents, which ensures the apartments are energy efficient and comply with the latest guidelines for sustainable homes. Under the scheme the company also manages a seamless billing system that enables the energy centre operators to interact with the customer through a messaging facility.
