Heat pumps are a critical part of the net-zero carbon future. As well as playing a role for individual homes, they are also an important option for heat networks – but how exactly do they work? What are the benefits? And are they really an option for high rise blocks?
Join Kensa and SE² – a consultancy that helps communities and organisations take practical action on climate change – to find out the environmental and cost-effective benefits of ground source heat pumps on a large scale. We’ll be presenting with a particular focus on heat pump projects in London and South East England.
Tackling carbon & fuel poverty with ground source heat pumps
Kensa’s Director of Low Carbon Partnerships, Ieman Barmaki will give an insightful presentation on ground source heat pumps and Shared Ground Loop Arrays. This system, which is Kensa’s low-carbon alternative to traditional district heating, designs out the typical issues of centralised systems, which can be energy-wasting and expensive. Ieman will explain the practicalities of the Shared Ground Loop Array systems: how they can dramatically reduce carbon emissions, tackle the huge issue of fuel poverty and tap into a variety of heat sources such as mine water and lakes.
A tried-&-tested technology: heat pump case studies
This online event will also branch off into insightful workshops. You’ll see just how the business case stacks up for ground source heating, including the long-term carbon savings and extremely high efficiencies of Kensa’s innovative shared ground loop system. Most importantly, you’ll find out how these systems can be implemented on a large scale – helping to tackle fuel poverty and preventing the ‘heat or eat’ ultimatum faced by many. Hear all about the lessons learnt from local authorities who have already decided to invest.
10:00 – Kensa’s Ieman Barmaki will teach you all about how heat pumps work and their positive impact on the environment, local authorities and householders
