The project was a finalist in three categories and was named winner of the 2021 Carbon Reduction Award.

This project delivers low carbon heat, helping us to reduce our organisation’s carbon footprint as we work towards our ambition of being net zero by 2045, and also offers our residents access to affordable heating.  Well done to all involved.”

Solution detail

Queens Quay is the first major water source heat pump project to demonstrate that we can harness the heat in our rivers, seas, and estuaries, which will be a game changer as we move to electrify heat. West Dunbartonshire Council have been pioneers in this area and shown how renewable energy can be a huge contributor on the journey to net zero. We now look forward to the heat network expanding and allowing more customers to access low-carbon, more affordable heat.
