Metropolitan’s district cooling network at King’s Cross, London’s most vibrant neighbourhood, went live today.
Serving the area north of the Regent’s Canal, the network will provide carbon-efficient cooling ultimately to four commercial and three residential buildings, and has been designed to enable later expansion to further buildings and customers.
The new district cooling network completes the implementation of tri-generation - the harnessing together of heat, power and cooling – at King’s Cross. Tri-generation achieves significant carbon-emission savings, delivering on the project’s sustainability targets. The new cooling network operates alongside Metropolitan’s district heat network which has been providing heat and power for King’s Cross since 2013.
