Ambient Heat Network
What is an Ambient Heat Network?
The proposed funded solution is called an Ambient Heat Network (sometimes referred to as a 5th generation heat network) using ground source heat pumps. With an Ambient Heat Network, each property has its own individual heat pump which provides 100% of the heating, hot water and cooling. It is connected to a borehole heat source array, which circulates at an ambient temperature to avoid wasteful heat loss to the environment.
- Individual, small ground source heat pumps within each house
- Energy from the boreholes is distributed to each heat pump
- Shared borehole heat source funded, owned and operated by us
The benefits of a Ground Source Ambient Heat Network
- No need for expensive, pre-insulated pipe and no hot water circulation(legionella risk) angle-right
- Easy integration similar to other utility infrastructure angle-right
- Active cooling is available from the Ambient Heat Network angle-right
- System runs at lowest temperature at all times, significantly increasing the efficiency angle-right
- Heat pumps and hot water storage are owned by the homeowners
