ENWL017 - Electricity and Heat

Electricity demand will increase and change as a result of the adoption of low carbon technologies and because of general load growth such as the increased use of air conditioning. As traditional reinforcement to accommodate this load could be costly and disruptive, we are seeking new and innovative solutions. Air conditioning systems tend to release a significant amount of heat as a by-product which is currently a wasted resource.

This project will investigate the feasibility of utilising this wasted heat to improve overall energy efficiency (reducing electrical demand) and allow the electrical demand to be managed.

Timescales: March 2016 – July 2019.
