Cutting costs & Carbon whilst keeping cool in the capital
Ground source heat pumps from Kensa are cutting costs and carbon at a development of 91 high-quality social rent new homes at the City of London Corporation’s York Way Estate in the London Borough of Islington. The environmentally-friendly newbuild scheme is supporting the City Corporation’s Climate Action Strategy.
This installation in a new build development in the London Borough of Islington is a prime example of how networked ground source heat pumps in high-density urban areas can provide the most efficient, lowest carbon and lowest cost heating and cooling solution for developers, local authorities and residents.
Kensa’s ground source heat pumps will be providing passive cooling, as well as heating and hot water to the new development at the York Way Estate. This ultra-low carbon solution will help reduce emissions, improve air quality and protect residents from fuel poverty.
A mixture of 3kW and 6kW Kensa Shoebox heat pumps will be installed into the new flats. These ground source heat pumps will extract naturally occurring heat from the ground surrounding the development via clusters of vertically drilled boreholes. It uses this renewable heat to deliver heating and hot water into the homes.
