As part of A2Dominion’s plan to demolish around 450 houses to make way for 700 properties, it is using combined heat and power (CHP) technology from Alfagy for the community heating system.
Based on a blueprint from Conran & Partners, the Green Man Lane estate in west London is being regenerated through a shared £136 million project between A2Dominion and Rydon.
A community heating system using Alfagy’s CHP technology will provide residents with low-carbon, cost-effective heating and electricity. Environmental performance will be further enhanced by the use of solar photovoltaic panels. Combined with the adoption of low-energy design principles, a cumulative CO2 saving of 57 per cent is expected, comfortably exceeding the 44 per cent needed to achieve the Code for Sustainable Homes Level 4.
Peter Kindt, chairman, Alfagy, said, “We were pleased to receive the residents’ informed decision to choose our CHP. After insulation, Alfagy’s CHP is the fastest way of reducing CO2 emissions and cutting fuel costs.”
