DECARBONISING PUBLIC SECTOR HEAT
By optimising efficiency, reducing costs and bringing transparency about the performance of planned low carbon heat solutions, organisations are able to lower risks and maximise the benefit from funding schemes such as:

How Hysopt can help with your low carbon heat project:
1. Free Low carbon heat assessment
Take advantage of Hysopt’s unparalleled expertise in optimising heating systems by using our FREE low carbon heat optimisation calculation to support your application bid.
Our calculation will help you understand the potential carbon, energy cost and capital cost impacts a properly optimised low carbon heat solution can make; and provide you with all the key metrics required for your PSDS-3b application or other low carbon heat schemes.
2. Hysopt conceptual study
For a more indepth study, our conceptual optimisation study will create a full digital model of your current installation, complete with dynamic simulations of how low carbon heat options will perform.
Our power Pareto Analysis Tool will provide an objective comparison of different design options against a range of KPI’s and performance metrics, providing detailed evidence to support your PSDS bid or underpin your heat decarbonisation plan.
This technical note has been prepared by Hysopt as a supplement to the Salix Phase 3b Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme Guidance (August 2022).

Less risk, lower cost and more certainty with Hysopt!
One of the greatest 2050 Net Zero targets is decarbonising the way buildings are heated. Most public buildings still rely on fossil fuel-based heating. Since these approaches are end of life, it is an ideal opportunity to transition to a low carbon approach.
Low carbon heating and cooling measures, such as heat pumps and low carbon heat networks, have the potential to deliver immediate carbon savings, but they are not a like-for-like replacement for gas boilers. Experience from previous funding rounds has already shown the opportunity for good practice system design is being missed.
Public sector clients tell us that decarbonising heat is complex, costly and risky due to uncertainty about how systems will perform once they’re installed.
Too often the chance for best-practice system design is being missed, while the opportunity to optimise existing systems – especially in older buildings – to make them “low carbon heat ready” is not well understood.

Why use Hysopt in your low carbon heat project?
Scheme: Academy secondary school – Gas boiler to heat pump upgrade
Prior to Hysopt modelling: proposal to install 1MW high temperature heat pumps, capex circa £1.5m
