Project description:

The project will install air source heat pumps, thermal storage and smart controllers in rural or semi-rural homes across 3 council areas in Scotland: East Ayrshire, East Dunbartonshire and the Highlands. The project will demonstrate how storage and smart controls can reduce the peak demands of heat pumps on energy networks.
