GSHPA is exhibiting at Ecobuild 2017
7-9 March 2017
The GSHPA is at Ecobuild on 7 to 9 March to explain how ground source energy can help you address the key issue of combating global warming in a practical way that is in tune with the natural environment.
Protecting and enhancing the environment sits at the heart of sustainability. With the growing awareness that the built environment accounts for nearly half of the UK’s CO2 emissions, innovative, green solutions for designing, constructing and using buildings are in urgent demand.
Most of the CO2 emissions in the UK come from buildings, with the majority coming from burning fossil fuels to provide heating and hot water.
The clearest route to reducing carbon emissions is to stop combustion.
The alternative to combustion for heating is to use heat transfer.
This implies the electrification of heat – and using heat pumps to arrange heat transfer from the ground in place of combustion.
The case for using ground source heat pumps increases each year with the decarbonisation of the grid. It also increases greatly for buildings that need cooling in the summer as well as heating in winter – because summer heat can be stored in the ground and then recycled back to the building in winter.
Ecobuild has a renewed focus on enabling sustainable construction for 2017. It will also explore sustainability as a driver for innovation and growth, and a catalyst for regeneration.
You can register for free tickets to visit Ecobuild 2017.
We look forward to seeing you at the GSHPA Stand at Ecobuild in 2017: Stand C150.
