Go-ahead for New Energy Centre

Tuesday April 9th 2019

Woking is committed to sustainable and eco-friendly resourcing to keep our town thriving for generations to come. We’re delighted that ThamesWey is bringing that ambition to life with a new energy centre on Poole Road that will secure the future of low carbon energy supplies in Woking for the next 50 years.

The new energy centre will have the capacity to generate enough heat and power to supply the equivalent of over 2,500 homes. Using new green energy technologies, it will further reduce dependence on fossil fuels. It will play a vital role in the transformation of Woking Town Centre, supplying low carbon heat and power to the new Hilton hotel, shops and over 400 apartments currently under construction at Victoria Square.

Three large thermal stores will provide a striking new landmark as well as providing an efficient way of storing store heat to supply customers at times of peak demand.

Future developments to be supplied by the energy centre include the ‘Woking Gateway’ scheme of 470 apartments near the railway station, which is expected to be underway in 2021.

Construction of the energy centre will start on site later in the summer and will be completed in time for Victoria Square to open to customers in September next year.
