Glen Mhor Heat Project

Project Organisation:

Glen Mhor Ltd

Technology type(s):

Energy centre with 1MW water source heat pump


Glen Mhor Hotel, Inverness

Grant value:


Predicted completion date:

March 2024

Project description:

The project will install and commission a new energy centre which will house a 1 MW water source heat pump and use water from the River Ness to supply heat to the Glen Mhor Hotel in Inverness. It is hoped that additional connections to the heat network may be feasible in the future, such as connecting a planned Brewery and Visitor Centre development at the hotel as well as a nearby Church of Scotland and social housing development. However, none of these connections have been confirmed at this stage.

The project is expected to reduce emissions by approximately 730 tonnes CO2 pa and commission in March 2024.
