Underground line to heat up homes in north London


- Heat from the London Underground will be used to keep homes warm this winter under a new scheme. Transport for London (TfL) said waste heat from the Northern Line will be harnessed and channelled to provide heating and hot water to around 1,000 homes in Islington. The Bunhill heat network in Islington already provides heating to more than 800 homes in Bunhill ward as well as Finsbury Leisure Centre, Ironmonger Row Baths and offices on Old Street. The second phase of the project involves building a new energy centre at the top of Central Street, connecting the King’s Square Estate to the network and adding capacity to supply an additional 1,000 homes.
