District Heating Heatpumps
Star’s Neatpump turns cold water and air into affordable, renewable heat and hot water for whole cities, including businesses, hospitals and schools.
Seen as a key strategy for decarbonising our heat dense cities, when coupled with a high-temperature water source heat pump the result is a 2050 ready solution that can be implemented now.
Although implementing district heating heatpumps into dense urban areas can be complicated, with the carbon footprint of electricity at a historic low (and trending to 0), a heat pump led, district heating system is a guaranteed way to decarbonise a city. Heat pumps can achieve the required temperatures to displace the burning of fossil fuel heating and only improve over time when upgrades are made to buildings. If utilising a river then heat pumps can produce free cooling which could for example be consumed by a data centre.
Case Study: Drammen Heatpump
Case Study: Queen’s Quay
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.
