Decarbonisation of the City of London using Technology and Smart IT systems.

This is an opportunity to learn about District Heating, CHP (Combined Heat and Power) systems and the road to net zero in the City. The General Manager of Citigen, Mr Leke Oluwole, will brief us on the Citigen scheme, the current and future network, the technology and the IT systems and then take us for a tour of the site.

There will be ample opportunity for questions. Repair to the Hand & Shears afterwards.

Background:

The Citigen Energy Centre, located in the heart of the City, has been supplying decentralised district energy, a lower carbon and cost-efficient source of energy, since 1995. Using a modern tri-generation system with internal combustion engines, Citigen provides district heat, electricity and cooling to an 11kms network from the Guildhall to Charterhouse Street.

Over the last 18 months a project to install ground source heat pumps has been underway, taking energy from the ground and utilizing that in generating heating and cooling. When commissioned by the end of the year, it is expected to reduce carbon emissions at the Centre in 2023-2024 by 50%. Organisations connecting to the network will have a net zero carbon footprint for heating and cooling.
