The London Borough of Merton has begun the development of a district heat and power system. In order to financially model the feasibility of this scheme, energy consumption data for borough buildings must be known. The objective of this project was to investigate and apply methods for mapping the energy use of buildings within the borough of Merton. Difficulties encountered in data collection led to a revision of our project to include the drafting of sustainable information gathering mechanisms. With these in place the Merton Council will be able to base future plans on an accurate and thorough knowledge base.
