GSHPA launch realtime CO2 calculator and good practice guide

The Ground Source Heat Pump Association (GSHPA) launched two new tools at their annual Expo in September 2017.

The new realtime CO2 calculator, sponsored by Geoscience Ltd, is an app displaying the carbon intensity of the UK electricity grid. This realtime intensity is used to calculate CO2 emissions from Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHPs) at that moment. It is updated every 30 minutes and illustrates the significantly lower carbon emissions from GSHP systems versus burning fossil fuels. The CO2 issued by a GSHP powered solely from ‘green’ electricity is of course, zero.

The Environmental Good Practice Guide for Ground Source Heating and Cooling (originally published in 2011 by the Environment Agency) provides information and advice to prospective users of ground source energy. With significant updates by the GSHPA, it now focuses on good practice for open and closed loop GSHP systems. For a copy contact: info@gshp.org.uk.
