The UK government has launched a grant scheme to invest up to £10 million to develop technologies that reduce the carbon emissions associated with providing heat and hot water to UK buildings. Innovative technologies, processes and tools are supported by grants of up to £2m, issued by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
Warwick is developing ‘the next generation’ of the common domestic gas boiler – a gas heat pump that will use over one third less gas than a normal domestic boiler. The lifetime payback time will remain the same as a conventional boiler and pay for itself within three or four years. The system is an ‘air-source’ heat pump - it extracts heat from the outside air, ‘upgrades’ it to a higher temperature and delivers it as hot water to radiators.
