Questions to the Mayor of London – answered on 1st March 2022.
Do you agree that the final Energy Assessment Guidance should include a clear and precise definition of ambient loop systems (distinguishing from e.g. low temperature heat networks or ultra-low temperature heat networks) so that there is no ambiguity when discussing these technologies?
The aim of the draft Energy Assessment Guidance is to explain how to prepare an energy strategy that accompanies a planning application to ensure compliance with London Plan policies SI 2 - 4. We keep the guidance under regular review to account for new and emerging technologies and will consider this suggestion as we prepare any future guidance updates.
