This webinar will summarise methods and approaches for obtaining renewable heat from the ground using ground source heat pumps (GSHP).

GSHP technologies are capable of the most efficient provision of heating and cooling and can be used for buildings from the smallest domestic set-up to the largest commercial or public buildings. The technology is best applied to district energy networks using common borehole arrays to provide heat and cooling to, for instance, large housing estates or groups of commercial buildings. GSHP technologies are viable anywhere; it is a matter of design and which technology is the most applicable to each location. With ever-decreasing carbon intensity of the electricity supply, GSHPs are currently a low carbon heating and cooling technology and they will ultimately become zero carbon.

The talk will be illustrated with a number of case studies from the UK.

Profile summary

John Findlay is a the founder and Managing Director of RSK subsidiary Carbon Zero Consulting and has been working in the GSHP sector for over 20 years and has been involved in aspects of design and regulation of many of the larger systems operating in the UK today.
