The electrification of heat via air source heat pumps is becoming more common, but water bodies provide an untapped and economical energy resource for projects situated near rivers and lakes. 

This session will look at schemes in detail to understand the potential of various types of water-sources, the scale of the infrastructure needed to access the energy and how to accommodate these facilities within a heritage context. Learn from the teams behind the Clydebank district heating system and Darwin College, Cambridge how heat from water bodies can deliver energy to schemes.
