In 2009 the Mayor of London awarded funds to a number of London boroughs to set up Low Carbon Zones to reduce emissions by 20.12% by 2012. Muswell Hill was one of the ten zones established. The project, which launched officially on 27th February 2010, was run by Haringey Council in co-ordination with partner organisations including Muswell Hill Sustainability Group, local businesses and residents associations. The zone included businesses and flats on Muswell Hill Broadway, the Muswell Hill Centre and the residential area off St James’ Lane on the southern slope of the hill. It included 840 residential buildings. Householders and businesses in the Zone were helped to make lasting changes through energy audits, low cost energy-saving measures such as loft insulation and education about waste. The project has now terminated.
en10ergy played a facilitative role in this project and has used the experience gained in the Low Carbon Zone to cut CO2 emissions in the wider Muswell Hill area.
