A new deal is claimed to help King’s Cross become the first neighbourhood in the UK to move the entire gas supply to green gas.

The new agreement will see the estate’s 2,000 homes, four million square feet of offices, retail and dining space have all heating and hot water powered by green gas.

The green gas deal is predicted to halve the area’s carbon footprint saving an estimated 20,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide every year.

Nearly 40,000MWh of green gas will be delivered to King’s Cross every year from an anaerobic digestion plant in Scotland owned by the low carbon investor Iona Capital.

Further green gas certificates totalling 21,000MWh will be purchased from other sites to cover the estate’s gas needs.
