Bunhill Energy Centre is connected to a district wide heat network in Islington, London, which provides cheaper, greener heat to homes on several estates and buildings in the borough. In the same way that we use heat from a car engine to keep us warm when driving, the energy centre uses the heat created from producing electricity to help heat buildings and provide hot water. Unlike normal electricity production that wastes up to two thirds of the fuel used to make it, Bunhill Heat and Power uses the otherwise wasted heat to heat 700 homes, Ironmonger Row Baths and Finsbury Leisure Centre and therefore it is more efficient, cheaper and greener.
