Eversheds advises Southwark council on combined heat and power energy project
Eversheds has advised Southwark council on London’s first district heating system, harnessing energy from waste, to heat 2,500 homes.
In a project developed by Veolia Environmental Services, the South East London Combined Heat and Power Plant (SELCHP) will supply excess heat and hot water to 2,500 homes across Bermondsey and Southwark. The project is intended to reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 8,000 tonnes each year and is a step towards establishing a fixed-fee energy system for residents in the area.
The Eversheds team, led by partner Michael Grimes and supported by senior associates Andrew Hirst and Evelyn Onifade, advised Southwark council on all aspects of this agreement, working closely with the council’s in-house legal team.
