"Over 100 years of running electric trains in the London Underground has caused temperatures to rise, especially on the deep-level lines. Heat is generated through the distribution and transmission of electricity, and the motion and operation of the trains - including acceleration and braking. Heat has been absorbed into the earth and clay surrounding the tunnel walls to create the higher temperatures of today.
The Cooling the Tube programme is focused on removing or reducing heat, relocating heat sources and where possible provide cooling solutions to keep customers within safe and comfortable conditions.
The talk on the 11th March at 6.30pm will present the technologies and innovations which London Underground are proposing to adopt, followed by an open discussion. It will be held at The Building Centre, Store Street, London, WC1E 7BT and you can book your place here.
Unfortunately I can't go, as I've got something else on that night, but if anyone does go and wants to write some notes or a guest blog post please let me know. Many thanks.
