Generation 5 – Early Years Nursery Programme

Project Organisation:

Glasgow City Council

Technology type(s):

Air source heat pump, solar PV and rainwater harvesting


Four new build nurseries in Glasgow: Broomhill, Tollcross, Carntyne, Cuthbertson

Grant value:


Completion date:

September 2022

Project description:

The Generation 5 – Early Years Nursery Programme ensures that four new Early Years Facilities align with Glasgow City Council’s carbon reduction ambitions. At each of the four Early Years Centres, air source heat pumps were installed to deliver low carbon heating to the new buildings and solar PV was installed to provide renewable electricity. Metering was installed to monitor the efficiency of the heat pump systems and the generation of PV. Rainwater harvesting was also installed at two of the sites: Broomhill and Cuthbertson.

It is expected that these four projects will achieve a total carbon saving of approximately 29,972 kgCO2e pa compared to business-as-usual scenarios.
