Default London Underground heat recovery

Anyone catch this today http://www.itv.com/news/london/story...-london-homes/?

Obviously as a mass consumption news story, it is rather lacking in technical detail and normally I'd simply ask if anyone knew more, hoping that it would get people searching (while I did the same) and perhaps start an interesting discussion. But as that is clearly not de rigueur (see http://www.stationary-engine.net/for...ad.php?t=35581 posts 12 and 13), here are a few links to start you off:-

https://www.london.gov.uk/sites/defa...y%20Report.pdf

http://www.cibse.org/content/cibsesy...%20Rev%203.pdf

http://www.islington.gov.uk/publicre...-and-Power.pdf

Discuss!

Just in case you thought there was no stationary engine content in this thread, here is the sort of thing you might find in the Bunhill CHP plant the tube heat will apparently feed into.

Another thing which interests me is that the recovered heat will clearly be at too low a temperature for direct use so will need 'pumping' - I wonder if they use (or intend to use) vapour cycle machines or reverse Stirling cycle?
