The London Borough of Brent aims to reduce its carbon emissions via implementation of decentralized energy schemes including combined heat and power systems. The objective of this project was to aid Brent in the early stages of its decentralized energy master planning. By examining policies of other boroughs and studying major development areas within Brent, the WPI project team has concluded that the council must actively facilitate the development of decentralized energy systems through the use of existing practices and development of well supported policies.
