Current research projects



LoT-NET is a six-year programme grant to investigate how waste heat can be recovered, used and incorporated in smart, thermal and electrical energy systems.


We are integrating an electric heat pump with a thermochemical absorption thermal store, creating a more efficient way to heat our homes.

Mission Innovation: Sorption Heat Pump

We are investigating and developing low cost heat-powered heat pumps based on sorption technology as part of Mission Innovation's Challenge 7: Affordable Heating and Cooling of Buildings.


We are developing more efficient low-carbon technologies for low-temperature heat recovery, storage and upgrade and modelling their performance within complex energy networks.


Thermal Energy Research Accelerator (T-ERA)

Warwick is part of the Energy Research Accelerator, a multimillion pound research hub building on the expertise of six midlands universities.

Past Research Projects


BEIS Low Carbon Heating Technology: Adsorption Gas Heat Pump

Warwick is developing ‘the next generation’ of the common domestic gas boiler that will use over one third less gas than a normal domestic boiler.



We led one of six End Use Energy Demand centres, created to lead the UK government’s commitment to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050.



Warwick led the development of a range of heat pump, storage and control technologies that can deliver energy efficient affordable hot water.


DECC tender: Research to support the International Energy Agency (IEA) Annex on Gas Driven Heat Pumps

A DECC contracted project to report on the effects and implications of operating heat pumps within a smart grid system.
