Use of a low-temperature, 5th generation energy network across the 5.5 acres of Bankside Yards and the 5 different building use types, will create unprecedented energy sharing benefits. These benefits will subsequently provide energy efficiencies and significant savings.
All eight buildings across Bankside Yards will be powered by electricity derived from renewable resources, producing zero emissions in operation.
Technologies including air source heat pumps and optimised facades, as well as state-of-the-art ventilation and heat recovery systems, will enhance the scheme's sustainability credentials, helping make it net zero carbon in operation.
An electric underground logistics network will minimise disruption, congestion and truck movements throughout the development.
The result will allow more space for amenities, public realm and biodiversity, including 150 trees across 20 species planted around the site. This will support the Mayor's commitment to a 10% increase in London's tree canopy cover by 2050.
