Croydon Council Cuts Carbon & Costs with Ground Source Heat Pumps

Cutting carbon and costs with ground source heat pumps

Croydon Council was the first in the borough to make the switch to lower carbon heating after the local climate emergency was announced. Working with Kensa, they have cut carbon and costs thanks to the use of ground source heat pumps.

As part of a pilot project, electric storage heaters were replaced with low-carbon ground source heat pumps in 44 flats within a tower block. As a result of the successful scheme, Croydon Council has committed to switching to ground source heat pumps in a further 86 flats across two tower blocks, which were using gas boilers.

The ground source heat pumps will reduce residents’ heating bills and help towards the borough’s goal of cutting carbon emissions by 34% by 2025. Watch the video to take a behind-the-scenes look at the project and all the long-term benefits of ground source heating for local councils and communities.
