What is the North London Heat and Power Project?

We are building a flagship facility to continue recovering energy from waste for the community in north London. This will be one of the most efficient and advanced facilities of its kind in the UK, and among the best performing in Europe.

The facility has successfully diverted over 21 million tonnes of waste from landfill since energy from waste treatment started nearly 50 years ago. By 2025 the current facility will have reached the end of its life and we need to invest in a replacement.

Following our consultation with the local community and stakeholders, the Government consented the operation of a new state-of-the-art energy recovery facility at Edmonton EcoPark. This will enable us to continue managing the waste that cannot be recycled in a sustainable and cost-effective way.

The new facility will be capable of exporting power to the national grid and providing heat to the Meridian Water Heat Network.
