Smart Community Energy: GreenSCIES

Launch of revolutionary low carbon smart energy grid to combat fuel poverty and power homes, businesses and electric vehicles.

We are very excited to announce our involvement with GreenSCIES - a revolutionary low carbon smart energy grid launched by London South Bank University, Islington Council and Transport for London on 18th February 2020 in London and the West Midlands.

Cleverly concealed underground, GreenSCIES (Green Smart Community Integrated Energy System) will deliver low carbon heat, mobility and power to an estimated 33,000 residents and nearly 70 local businesses in Islington. The new smart energy grid will help to reduce carbon emissions by an estimated 80% (against conventional systems) while addressing fuel poverty by providing a significant reduction on consumer bills. The system will also deliver air quality improvements by reducing pollutants while improving provision of local skills training and job prospects, helping to invigorate local economies.

GreenSCIES works by sharing heating and cooling between buildings, to ensure a balanced energy supply across the network: waste heat is captured from secondary heat sources - including office buildings, data centres and the public transport network. The temperature of the waste heat is then raised or cooled using heat pumps before being distributed to homes, businesses and communities, all year round. By drawing on waste heat produced by data centres that support the Internet, the smartgrid will channel energy from the Internet to power homes, offices and transport networks of the future.

GreenSCIES heat loop concept

Under the umbrella of InnovateUK, Cullinan Studio is one of 16 business partners that have been developing the ground-breaking engineering science behind GreenSCIES – funded by UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) through the Government’s Industrial Strategy Challenge Fund.

Carol Costello, a Practice Leader of Cullinan Studio said:

“The design of clean, low-carbon energy infrastructure is a vital part of creating healthy and thriving communities. Our team of architects is excited to part of the GreenSCIES project; helping to devise how this new technology can be integrated into our neighbourhoods through consultation with local people.”

Graeme Maidment, Professor of Heating and Cooling in the School of Engineering at London South Bank University (LSBU) and Director of GreenSCIES consortium, said:

“GreenSCIES provides a brilliant opportunity to deliver low carbon energy in urban areas. This fantastic consortium will develop new systems and business models to provide fairer access to low cost and low carbon energy supply for local residents in inner cities – many of whom are fuel poor. We will also investigate policy models and strategies to optimise their adoption at local, national and international levels.”

Asa Barber, LSBU’s Dean of Engineering, said:

“People often assume that universities only work with large corporations, but GreenSCIES demonstrates how, at London South Bank University we have been able to bring together over a dozen small business enterprises to deliver a project with international potential.

“Applied research of this kind also plays a key role in enriching teaching at LSBU, ensuring that students are given up to the minute information, directly informed by the University’s work with industry.”

Cllr Rowena Champion, Islington Council’s executive member for environment and transport, said:

“We are proud to be part of the GreenSCIES consortium, developing new and innovative ways to tackle a host of issues we face, not only here in Islington, but in cities and urban areas across the world.

“Harnessing waste heat from data centres and other urban sources is an inspired approach to not only help reduce fuel poverty for thousands of people, but also increase the share of journeys taken using zero-carbon transport, while helping Islington achieve its target of being a net carbon zero borough by 2030.”

David Richardson, Innovation Lead for Energy Systems at UKRI, said:

“The GreenSCIES team have developed an innovative approach to the design of heat networks. They have formed a broad and diverse team which is working effectively towards solving a complex challenge – which is a difficult thing to do. I’m confident that this project will provide a leap towards Islington’s net-zero ambitions. Hopefully it will also prove that the design can be successfully replicated across the UK. GreenSCIES is definitely one to watch.”
