From Everything Electric Show.
Could a shared network of ground source heat pumps be the solution to decarbonising millions of UK homes? Is the solution literally beneath our feet?
Imogen and the team went to Stithians in Cornwall to talk to Kensa Utilities about their Heat the Streets project and how they’re helping to tackle the climate crisis through networked ground source heat pumps and funded arrays. These networks are being proposed as an alternative to the gas grid for rural and urban areas across the UK.
