FACILITIES AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT – LOW CARBON LONDON
LOW CARBON LONDON
“ACTIVE NETWORK MANAGEMENT”
FACILITIES AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT – LOW CARBON LONDON
Low Carbon London – a learning programme using
London as a testbed to develop a smarter energy
network
A collaboration between UK Power Networks and
various partners including Imperial College London,
National Grid and EDF Energy
Funded by Ofgem’s Low Carbon Networks Fund
Part of the Mayor of London’s carbon reduction
strategy
FACILITIES AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT – LOW CARBON LONDON
Imperial College has set up a Low Carbon Learning
Laboratory to analyse data and share learning from the
programme
Part of the Department of Electrical and Electronic
Engineering
Professor Goran Strbac, Dr Simon Tindemans and
Mark Bilton
FACILITIES AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT – LOW CARBON LONDON
Low Carbon Networks 5 Themes
Smart meters
Wind twinning
Demand side management
Electric vehicles and heat pumps
Distributed generation – the Mayor’s target is 25% of
electricity and heating from local generation by 2025
FACILITIES AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT – LOW CARBON LONDON
Increased demand on distribution network results in
network upgrades. Cost of upgrades passed to customers.
Our CHP engines will be connected to London Distribution
Network via “active network management” devices
Result will be “smarter” network with more connections into
it
These connections will be microgeneration units like our,
with a lower carbon footprint
FACILITIES AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT – LOW CARBON LONDON
Availability payments – when generation capacity
is made available to UK Power Networks
Utilisation payments – when the capacity is taken
up
Our CHP engines will mitigate overloads at the
Duke Street substation in Mayfair
FACILITIES AND PROPERTY MANAGEMENT – LOW CARBON LONDON
Progress so far
FM have agreed in principle to the project – contract terms to be
agreed
Project team has identified June, July and August as the period
when they would utilise 10% of capacity of one engine
Technical phase of the project will now commence, to look at
installing the active network management controls
Trials will start in August
Project runs till 2014
