Decarbonising Heat in Public Sector Buildings
The new Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme is providing £1bn of grant funding for energy efficiency and heat decarbonisation projects for non-domestic public sector buildings in England, including:
- NHS Trusts
- Emergency Services
- Local Authorities
- Eligible central government departments
Heat pumps are likely to be one of the most popular solutions and have the potential to deliver immediate carbon emission savings. However, they are not a like-for-like replacement for gas boilers and experience has shown that good practice system design will be essential if they are to be deployed successfully.
This webinar will focus on the importance of correct design and integration of heat pumps in existing non-domestic buildings to optimise carbon savings; energy costs; and capital investment costs; as well as looking at findings from recently published reports and case studies.
Expert speakers from the Carbon Trust, Solid Energy and Hysopt will cover the factors that public sector bodies looking to secure funding under the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme need to consider to ensure their projects are a success. The webinar will also include an overview of eligibility criteria and application process for the Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme.
