‘Poo power’ could fuel 2,000 London homes under new project

Excess heat recovered from the sewage treatment process could be used to power more than 2,000 homes in London.

A new partnership between Thames Water and Kingston Council, dubbed the ‘poo power’ scheme, is the first of its kind in England and has the potential to provide clean, green heating to new homes as part of the regeneration of Kingston’s Cambridge Road Estate.

Under the plans, heat recovered from the final effluent of the sewage treatment process at Hogsmill will be captured before water is returned to the river, concentrated, and supplied to local buildings from a state-of-the-art energy centre to be built on the site.
