Cory Riverside Energy has announced its plans to build a low-carbon energy park at its site in Belvedere, London.

Targeted to be operational by 2024, the energy park will include waste energy recovery, anaerobic digestion, solar panels and battery storage.

It is expected to generate up to 96 megawatts of renewable energy at peak times which combined with a permitted capacity from the Cory’s existing energy recovery facility (ERF), is the equivalent of powering around 300,000 houses.

The park is also expected to produce cheap heat for export to nearby homes and businesses.

Cory has advised the government’s Planning Inspectorate of its proposals and public exhibitions are expected to be held during summer 2018.

Nicholas Pollard, chief executive of Cory Riverside Energy, said: “London is facing a significant capacity gap in its ability to appropriately dispose of and treat all of its waste.

“By employing a range of technologies which are proven at scale, we can expand our ability to generate clean, low-carbon energy for London and treat more of London’s waste within the city’s boundaries.”

Hitachi Zosen Inova has been selected as its Engineering, Procurement and Construction contractor, due its delivery of Cory’s Riverside ERF.
