Investing in low carbon city living

Working with Related Argent and Barnet Council in London, Vattenfall will design, build and operate a new heat network for one of Europe's largest redevelopments - Brent Cross Town.

Whether launching a new heat network, or scaling an existing one, local authorities can face a raft of challenges on their journey to decarbonise city living. 

Tackling decarbonisation at a city-level requires investment, experience and the capability to deliver large energy projects that address the carbon challenge while driving economic growth through job creation and social value.

All of these obstacles require experience and expertise to bring major energy infrastructure projects to fruition, and the strategic awareness necessary to generate capital, drive investment and create jobs.

How we can help

Our wealth of experience and expertise means we can work with your supply chain and other partners in a variety of commercial structures, with the goal of optimising performance.

We are able to set up commercial arrangements which allow local authorities to retain direction and control of the operation where required, which in turn, will create further jobs, boost the local economy and deliver heat to residents and businesses.
