Kensa Contracting’s George Gillow- ‘Heat as a Service with Ground Source Heat Pumps.’:
Challenge: Providing the comfort, control and convenience of peoples’ current heating and hot water system at a comparable cost is a major challenge to decarbonizing heat.
A Solution: One way of addressing this challenge is to provide heat or ‘comfort’ as a service. This would provide customers with the level of heating and cooling they require at a fixed cost, whilst maintaining the individual control and convenience the customer is used to. At the same time, the provider is able to buy wholesale energy at low-cost low carbon prices, hence funding the delivery of the low carbon heat.
