Star to exhibit at low carbon expo


01 November 2022
Star will demonstrate the benefits of the 3MW water source heat pump at Castle Park Energy Centre in Bristol

Star Renewable Energy will be exhibiting at The Low Carbon Heat Technology Expo on 17 November at Hamilton International Technology Park. 

Organised by Scotland’s Low Carbon Heat Network, HeatSource, the event will bring Scottish based suppliers of low carbon heat technology and renewable heat experts closer to organisations up and down the supply chain. 

The expo will welcome speakers from the public, private, domestic and non-domestic sectors to discuss decarbonisation plans across both new-build and retrofit applications of low carbon heat and energy projects, providing attendees with a better understanding of the pipeline of activity and potential markets in this space.

Star Renewable Energy, will be providing information and advice on a range of recently installed water source heat pumps for district heating networks across the UK. 

One such example is the 5.2MW district heat pump in Clydebank which provides low carbon heating and hot water for buildings at Queens Quay. The project is the largest of its kind in the UK and was awarded the ‘Heat Pump City of the Year Award 2021’ by the European Heat Pump Association (EHPA). The water source heat pump system abstracts heat from the River Clyde in Glasgow to heat a range of residential blocks, offices and leisure centre via district heating, producing an 80% lower carbon footprint than burning gas and sometimes more

Star will also demonstrate the benefits of the recently installed 3MW water source heat pump at Castle Park Energy Centre in Bristol. The heat pump takes water from the nearby floating harbour and uses it to generate heat and hot water for local businesses and residents. The heat network is supplying over 1000 properties with low-carbon heat and continues to expand to new areas across the city. The impressive project also received ‘European Heat Pump City of the Year 2022’ status.  

Nicky Cowan, Star Renewable energy manager, said: “Decarbonising heating systems, whether that is an industrial process or district heating, is one of the more complex areas to eliminate carbon. I am really excited to have the opportunity to meet with people from all different sectors and discuss how we can help.”
