2 Mitsubishi Electric Guide to the London Plan Presented by: COPYRIGHT © 2014 MITSUBISHI ELECTRIC EUROPE B.V. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED

3 Europe’s biggest city 1,572 sq. km 7.56 million people Forecast to grow to 10 million by 2031 Plan for integrated framework Why a special plan?

4 1) Meet the challenges of growth sustainably 2) Create a globally competitive city 3) Diverse and strong community 4) Great buildings and architecture 5) World leader in supporting the environment 6) City that is accessible via good public transport Six key objectives

5 121 policies Over 300 pages Updated end of 2013 Ensures joined-up policy All Boroughs must adhere to it About the plan

6 Background to all planning Sustainable development is central theme Mitigating effects of climate change Lifting people out of fuel poverty The plan and construction

7 UK capital is vulnerable to climate change, through: Flooding Subsidence Water shortages Overheating All are more likely to happen…. London and climate change

8 167 litres of water per person, per day Energy demand growing More public transport use Lower carbon emissions The City – good and bad for the environment

9 Reducing carbon and emissions Improve energy efficiency of London’s homes 60% reduction in CO 2 by 2025 Deliver 25% energy from decentralised sources by 2025 GLA targets

10 Development Plan Documents (DPDs) 1. Does the proposal use less energy by adopting sustainable design and construction measures? 2. Does the proposal use an efficient energy supply, with particular emphasis on de-centralised energy generation? 3. Does the proposal use renewable energy? Lean, clean and green

11 Effective adaptation Minimise overheating Reduce heat island effect Minimise solar gain and water use Reduce flood risk Other important factors

12 Energy assessment How CO 2 targets will be met? 40% improvement on Part L 2010 2019 – non-domestic zero carbon buildings Energy in the Plan

13 RE-FIT scheme – Retrofitting existing public sector building stock 40% refitted by 2025 11 million m 2 Save 2.5 million tonnes of carbon per year Existing stock – the main factor

14 RE-NEW for homes Maximise funding from the Green Deal Maximise funding from ECO Energy saving investments London homes

15 No single solution to London’s challenges Mayor supports innovative approaches Renewables must be considered for projects Heat pumps, photovoltaics, solar hot water New approaches to heating

16 Decentralised energy: by 2030 almost 25% London’s heat could be locally generated Secondary heat sources: Waste heat from industrial and commercial activities. Naturally occurring heat in the air, ground & water Decentralised energy and Secondary heat

17 Waste heat not uniform Need to lift temperatures Heat pumps could achieve this Heat pumps proven technology – 25,000 homes The potential of heat pumps

18 London in 2050 Move away from fossil fuels Secondary heat sources in the city centre and outskirts Heat pumps important technology Variety of capacities to suit A vision of low-carbon heating

19 Heat pumps access heat from air, water and ground Need to invest in building stock Improve energy performance then use renewables Heat pumps can do a lot to support the London Plan Using a range of available heat

20 Movement of heat between buildings through low temperature heat loops Opportunities for heating and cooling Heat not lost – re-used Higher temperature waste heat or loops can interact with low temperature loops Vital to realising change Movement of heat

21 Kingston Heights £70 million mixed use development Former power station next to the River Thames 56 affordable homes 81 luxury apartments Case study for London

22 All homes benefit from cutting-edge heat pump system Harvests naturally stored energy from the River Thames Community heating scheme based on heat pump technology Using Heat from the river

23 Thank you, any questions?
