Can you acknowledge that the classification of ambient loop systems with individual heat pumps units as individual heating systems is not appropriate as there are solutions in this category which can connect to a district heat network?

No. My officers have been in dialogue with the manufacturers of the Zeroth Energy System which has individual heat pump units, but have not yet been supplied with the evidence that addresses the concerns outlined in our response to Mayor’s Question 2022/0750. The net zero carbon target set out in the London Plan requires high levels of energy efficiency to be achieved as well as the use of innovative low carbon and renewable technologies to help Londoners reduce their energy use and carbon emissions.
