A new way to tackle climate change? Heat from underground rivers in London could help cut the capital's emissions, UK | Underground space | Scoop.it

A network of lost rivers buried under the streets of London could provide the capital city with fossil fuel-free heat, campaigners have claimed.

These ancient waterways could be directed through heat pumps to provide clean energy –reducing the emissions from the city, according to a new report. 

However, these pumps have never been used at scale in a UK project and the study did not look at whether building them would be financially viable. ...

What 3D mapping teaches us about what’s underneath our cities—and how we might better plan our morning commutes.....Rarely do we think downwards: about the intricate webs of pipes and cables that lie beneath our sidewalks. These unseen networks power our cities, connect our telecommunications, and carry away our waste. But like so many of our cities’ above-ground features, they weren’t always designed strategically. Underground infrastructure tends to be built on an ad-hoc basis—as telecommunications technology developed, we’d lay down a new wire—and when the company responsible for putting it there eventually merged, restructured, or went out of business, their data was buried along with the wires....
