What improvements will the project deliver?

North London Heat and Power Project will:

  1. Generate 78 megawatts of power from waste which can supply electricity and heat for up to 127,000 homes.
  2. Save the equivalent of 140,000 tonnes of CO² every year using energy recovery rather than disposing to landfill. That’s like taking 60,000 cars off the road.
  3. Improve air quality in north London with a current plant that operates 20% better than the permitted levels of nitrogen oxide and the new facility performing at more than 60% better.
  4. Support an impressive programme for over 100 apprenticeships and 225 skills training opportunities for the local community.
  5. Create over 2,500 job opportunities during construction and operation, further boosting the local economy.
  6. Treat waste for over 2 million residents in the most cost-effective way.
