Scotland’s largest water source heat pump for district heating reduces local carbon footprint by 60%

Client Scottish Government
Equipment 2 x 2.6 MW water source heatpumps
Location Clydebank


Supported by the Scottish Government Low Carbon infrastructure investment programme, Star Renewable Energy has recently joined forces with West Dunbartonshire Council and Vital Energi to deliver Scotland’s first industrial scale water source heat pump for a district heating network. Star has engineered two 2.6 MW water source heat pumps as part of the £250m Queen’s Quay regeneration project in Clydebank and will be installed in September once the development is complete.



Providing low carbon heat to the Queen’s Quay housing development, as well as the college and local businesses really does put Clydebank at the forefront of renewable energy technology.
