West Holborn Renewable Energy Network (WHREN)

Future phases

Following the drilling works, and subject to funding and planning permission, Phase 2 will see the development of an energy centre and pipe distribution network.

Overall, the scheme is likely to combine:

  • a mine water heat pump
  • a combined heat and power (CHP) back-up system
  • solar panels
  • a private wire electrical network with storage battery
  • wood gasification plant
