A massive underground pipe network could see Didcot Power Station share its spare heat with an entire new business park next door.
A water-source heat pump at the plant could produce 16,500 megawatt hours of electricity each year – equivalent to powering 1,375 homes.
Studies have also investigated other potential schemes to supply heat and power to other businesses and even residential developments.
South Oxfordshire District Council has already completed two early stages of feasibility studies and is now asking Government for extra funding.
