For the Government’s ambitious net zero plans to be possible by 2050, businesses need cost-effective solutions to eliminate their reliance on gas and oil for heating and cooling. WMG supported Arriba Technologies Ltd to develop a solar-powered heat pump product for large buildings including hospitals, factories, schools and supermarkets.
Early readings from the heat-pump’s first large-scale installation at Addenbrooke’s Hospital in Cambridge suggest energy efficiency savings of up to 80%. By using renewable sources and less energy, the heat-pump cuts costs whilst reducing emissions to zero. With a planned UK facility, commercial scaling is in progress and attracting interest from significant public sector organisations including the Department for Health.
