A million homes to be heated by river water

river-water

Energy Secretary Ed Davey is promoting water-source heat pumps as a green way of heating homes, and he has identified 4,041 rivers, estuaries and canals that contain sufficiently warm and accessible water for the devices. More than one million homes across the UK could be heated using the carbon-free device which extracts thermal energy from waterways to heat water for showers and radiators. The installation of such a device would take as much as 20% off household heating bills. The technology is becoming increasingly sophisticated, and scientists at Mitsubishi and Mike Spenser-Morris - a London property developer and director of the Zero Carbon Partnership - have together created a pump that can create 45C heat and can be used on a wider scale for mass housing developments.
