Ground source heat pumps, thermal storage


SWG3, Glasgow

Grant value:


Completion date:

October 2022

Project description:

BODYHEAT uses an integrated energy system to utilise the heat produced by event goers at arts venue SWG3. Heat pumps provide heat and cooling to the two largest event spaces, heat to the foyer, underfloor heating in the large event space (to directly replace gas boilers) and heat to the new graffiti studio. Thermal storage is provided by the closed-loop ground-source borehole array. This project has improved the energy efficiency and decarbonised the heating and cooling of the facility. The project held a launch event in SWG3 on 05/10/2022 to showcase the technology to stakeholders.
