Experts from the industry presented information and ideas to help organisations with heating bills of over £200,000 per year lower them by using heat pumps to extract the abundance of renewable heat from lochs and rivers in Scotland and the rest of the UK. Topics included how to get through the legislative and bureaucratic hurdles; how to plan for a heat pump system and finance large scale heat pump projects.
The event was organised by Star Renewable Energy, the firm that designed and implemented the Drammen district heating heat pump plant in Norway recently, with the help and support of Scottish Renewables and Scottish Enterprise.
For anyone interested in furthering their knowledge of heat networks and low carbon heat, there is the Low Carbon Heat International Showcase on 18 & 19 November in Edinburgh. More details can be found by clicking this link.
