3Ci Site Visit to Somers Town

3Ci Site Visit to Arsenal Net Zero Neighbourhood

What is this?

Private members are invited to join us on a site visit to Arsenal Net Zero Neighbourhood in the London Borough of Islington to learn about the opportunity to decarbonise the Arsenal area, which is a densely populated neighbourhood marked by a mix of residential, commercial properties and public facilities. 

Islington is investing across its estate and is working on opportunities to scale up different approaches to decarbonise its neighbourhoods. In the Arsenal neighbourhood the investment opportunity is focused on building a district heating network supplied by low carbon heat sources, improving the energy efficiency of homes and connecting them to the network, and installing solar panels and electric vehicle charging. Islington’s People Friendly Streets program is well advanced, and the borough has identified low carbon heating sources in the neighbourhood building on its unique experience extracting heat from London Underground vents. 

3Ci is a partnership between Connected Places Catapult, Core Cities UK, London Councils, Key Cities, Scottish Alliance, and other local authorities across the UK aimed at supporting local authorities secure the necessary long-term finance for achieving net zero. 3Ci members and invited guests will be guided by colleagues from London Borough of Islington. The visit will start with refreshments and presentations at Connected Places Catapult’s office 1 Sekforde Street, London, EC1R 0BE and conclude with a light lunch at a venue in the Highbury area. RSVP to ian.binns@cp.catapult.org.uk 

3Ci members and invited guests will be guided by colleagues from London Borough of Islington.
