The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is providing a series of free one-day training courses, designed to help developers and managers in the commercial property sector to understand more about how heat pumps can deliver lower energy bills, greater comfort and better buildings.
The roadshows will offer participants the chance to learn more about why heat pumps make sense, build their technical knowledge of how best to ensure good performance and understand the financing of heat pumps.
Roadshows for the non-domestic sector will be held on:
- Tuesday 23 June – Glasgow
- Wednesday 24 June – Newcastle
- Wednesday 1 July – Exeter
- Thursday 2 July – Cardiff
- Monday 6 July – Birmingham
- Tuesday 7 July – Manchester
Places can be booked online or by calling 020 8469 1333.
Heat pumps are increasingly being used to deliver heating and cooling in commercial space across the country. Six office buildings on Falmouth Business Park in Devon are now receiving heating and cooling from ground source heat pumps, as is Vanguard House, a laboratory and office building on a science and technology park in Cheshire. Industrial equipment supplier Axon uses an air source heat pump at its factory and office building in Rosyth, Fife, and air source heat pumps are supplying heating to businesses in Carus House, Clydebank.
The roadshows are designed for potential heat pump customers – such as commercial property owners, developers or energy and facilities managers. Priority will be given to potential customers for heat pumps, rather than installers or consultants, when allocating places at each session.
Note that the roadshows in London and the dedicated event on water source heat pumps are fully booked.
