Bunhill Heat and Power

Cheaper, greener energy in Islington

Islington Council’s Bunhill Heat and Power Network (BHPN) is the first scheme in the world to take waste heat from an underground train network and use it to provide lower cost, greener heat to local homes, schools and leisure centres.

This innovative project is part of Islington Council’s efforts to tackle fuel poverty in the borough by providing cheaper and greener energy for local residents and it contributes to the council’s ambitious aim of being a net zero carbon borough by 2030.

This ground-breaking scheme has the potential to be replicated not only across Islington and London but in any major city with an underground network. That’s because heat networks, such as BHPN, are able to harness a wide range of renewable and waste heat sources that are already available within a city.
