Summary:

  • Exploring ground array options for ground source heat pump developments with limited land.
  • Sizing and heat loss calculations are critical.
  • Invest in fabric efficiencies to minimise the heat load.
  • More efficient heat pumps require slightly more ground array.
  • Shared ground loop arrays for clusters of properties benefit from a degree of diversification so the ground array can be reduced.
  • Case study: Fire stations use small forecourt for ground array.
