The UK Department of Energy and Climate Change announced the details of the long awaited Renewable Heat Incentive Scheme. There is a plethora of information included on the DECC web site. The scheme for non-domestic installations will be rolled out first - with an interim scheme for domestic installations. Ground and water source heat pumps are one of the technologies included - together with solar thermal and biomass. The incentive will also apply to "useful" heat produced from deep geothermal projects. Good summary here.
This newsletter is assembled by Robin Curtis who has a vested interest in this technology and currently works for EarthEnergy Limited - a UK promoter of ground source heat pumps. Notwithstanding - this informal newsletter is intended to provide a focus for all UK activity on ground coupled, water source heating and cooling technology for buildings. This is variously referred to as earth coupled systems, geothermal heat pumps, earth energy systems, closed loop ground source heat pumps etc.
If you have any comments or contributions please do not hesitate to contact the author. Provided that items that you wish to submit are of relevance to the technology I will endeavour to incorporate them as quickly as possible - other commitments permitting.
