From Wind to Heat: Eliminating Carbon Emissions in the Built Environment
Seminar, by Geo Zero
We are finally seeing the impact of renewable electricity generation in the UK, having now gone more than two months without burning coal to generate electricity. As half the energy we consume in the UK is used to produce heat and currently only 5% is generated by renewables, this seminar shows how this percentage can be increased – as well as the advantages and disadvantages of various systems.
GeoZERO designs, manufactures, installs and maintains innovative heating and cooling packaged heat pumps, helping to solve the climate challenges we face today by eliminating carbon emission in application. All GeoZERO products are designed and manufactured in the company’s own state-of-the-art production facility in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire.
GeoZERO offers the complete solution, from inception to completion and beyond, with maintenance and remote monitoring. Its units generate heating from 200kW to 4MW (enough to heat a small city) in easily configurable units.
