Recovering waste heat from urban infrastructures is becoming increasingly important as governments around the world strive to decarbonise heat supply, which remains one of the main challenges in the transition towards net zero. The Bunhill Waste Heat Recovery (WHR) System represents a first-of-its-kind scheme that recovers waste heat from a ventilation shaft of the London Underground (LU) transport network. The system is based upon the installation of a heat recovery heat exchanger that consists of cooling coils and a reversible fan; the coils are connected to a heat pump (HP) that supplies low-carbon thermal energy to a heat network in the London Borough of Islington. One advantage of district-scale HP systems is the possibility of coupling them with thermal energy storage (TES) in order to reduce operating costs while delivering significant carbon savings. Furthermore, depending on the operation of the reversible fan, the WHR system enables the supply of cooled air to the Underground tunnels whilst simultaneously providing heating to the local heat network.
