Welcome to the North London Heat and Power Project

It’s about how we – North London Waste Authority – think the waste that cannot be recycled from the seven London boroughs in our area should be dealt with in the future. We are building an Energy Recovery Facility to replace the existing plant at the Edmonton EcoPark by 2025 so we can continue to recover energy – heat and power – from waste.

The replacement facility will generate over 50 megawatts of electricity, which means that in planning terms it is a Nationally Significant Infrastructure Project. As a result, the Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy decided whether we should be granted consent to build it, following examination of our proposals. The Secretary of State granted us a Development Consent Order for the project in 2017 and construction activities stared in early 2019.
