Carrier has supplied three high efficiency heat pumps with a combined capacity of 5MW for an innovative project harnessing energy from a local river.
The project, which received approval from the UK’s Environment Agency, utilises Carrier’s electrically-driven AquaForce 30XWHV water-to-water heat pumps. The units capture renewable energy from a local river and upgrade it to higher temperatures for use in an agricultural facility in north east England.
A pioneering water source heat pump project to deliver district heating will be showcased at the All Energy 2019 exhibition and conference in Glasgow. Star Renewable Energy is again exhibiting at the event, this year along with Vital Energi and West Dunbartonshire Council, its partners in the scheme which forms part of the regeneration of Queens Quay in Clydebank. For the first time in Scotland, water source heat pumps will take heat from a river to provide hot water and heating to a large development as part of a district heating system. The low carbon energy project delivered by Vital Energi is scheduled to be deployed in September.
A contemporary self-build house in North Norfolk is enjoying the benefits of renewable heating from Finn Geotherm.
The detached property, near Fakenham, is the vision of owners Rod and Pat George. Built entirely using Porotherm blocks within a light steel frame, the house uses some of the most up to date construction techniques and materials from around Europe. Energy efficiency has also remained front of mind, with all of the property’s 100m2 of floor to ceiling windows being triple glazed.
Parks in London's Hackney could help to generate green energy to heat nearby buildings through a new heat pump project.
Climate change charity 10:10 Climate Action is working with Hackney Council and energy consultants Scene to explore whether ground source and water-based heat pumps in parks and green spaces could be used to generate sustainable energy for heating nearby buildings, offering stable, low risk revenue in the process.
