Cardiff to trial groundwater heat pump technology for district heating

City of Cardiff Council is to undertake a £250,000 trial of groundwater heat pump technology to see whether its groundwater resources will support a larger scale district heating scheme for the city.

The partnership project between the council Cardiff-based business WDS Green Energy and the British Geological Survey will take the temperature of the water stored underneath the city, monitor heat lost from underground structures and then design and build a prototype portable testing module, based on ground source heat pump technology.
