Plymouth City Council - Air Source Heat Pumps (In Progress)

Executive Summary

Vital Energi are helping Plymouth City Council achieve their goal of a net zero city by 2030 by delivering carbon savings of just under 300 tonnes a year through the installation of advanced renewable energy technologies across five of their buildings and the combined law courts.

    4 air sourced heat pumps

Project Overview

Low carbon heat will be delivered to six of Plymouth’s key city centre buildings, including Ballard House, Plymouth City Council’s 7-storey head office, Crownhill Court, Grade II* listed Victorian townhouse, Elliot Terrace, and the Guildhall, which is a Grade II listed building owned by the council, linked by a heat network to the Council House and Plymouth Combined Court. This is part one of a larger programme of decarbonisation by the Council.

Our Solution

The buildings currently rely on individual gas fired boilers for heat, which release combustion gases and carbon emissions to the atmosphere via a flue in each building. We are providing the complete design, supply, delivery, installation, testing, commissioning, and monitoring for the installation of Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHP) which will be connected to the existing heating system.
