    • Micro-generation Renewable Options • Heat Pumps – GSHP technology proven throughout Europe – ASHP advances in technology have overcome the problems associated with earlier installations • Solar Thermal • Solar PV • Wind • Bio-Mass Boilers • Micro - CHP units still only in limited field trials - Performance & Reliability have been a problem, also noise • Fuel cells not yet beyond laboratory trials – Commercialisation not before 2011?
    • What is a Heat Pump?
    • How Does it Work?
    • Hot and Cold
    • Electricity in Heat out1 kW 4 kW 3 kW Solar energy from the earth COP (Co-efficient Of Performance) = 4
    • COP – Coefficient of Performance COP = Total Heat Output Energy Consumed e.g. 8 kW Heat Energy Out 2 kW Energy Consumed COP = 4 Efficiency = 400%
    • COP = Coefficient of Performance COP = Total Heat Output Energy Consumed

    • Fundamental Requirements of any swimming pool • WATER HEATING Replenish pool water heat losses • AIR HEATING Replenish/maintain pool air above pool temperature • DEHUMIDIFICATION Remove moisture from pool hall air • FRESH AIR Ventilate at minimum acceptable rates to dilute CO & airborne chemical build up ( also to create negative pressure) • SUMMERTIME COOLING To remove solar heat gains
    • What do indoor swimming pools require? 1. A pool temperature of between 28ºC and 30ºC (for leisure use) to make swimming pools suitable for swimmers 2. Pool hall air at 1ºC above pool temperature to minimise evaporation of pool water to minimise transmission loss to air to provide a comfortable condition for occupants 3. Relative Humidity of 55-65%RH to prevent condensation and damage to building to provide a comfortable condition for occupants 4. Ventilation at 10 litres/sec/person or 3 litres/sec/m2 pool area Dilute CO2 build up reduce airborne chemical build up eliminate odours

    • GSHP & Variheat
    • ASHP & Variheat
    • GSHP for Indoor Pool Water Heating • Operational heat losses of pool made up from recovered energy if using heat pump heat recovery AHU • Only water heat load comes from back wash of filters and dilution for chemical treatment • Heat up from cold done rarely • Cost prohibitive to size GSHP for rapid heat up time. • Limited usage if installed just for limited pool water heat load • GSHP combined with other loads e.g. pool hall air heating, main dwelling space heating would be OK
    • GSHP for Outdoor Pool • Summer Season; March - October • Use Air Source Heat Pump; e.g. Calorex 29 or 31 range • COP of GSHP fixed at 4 • COP of ASHP variable from 4 when air at 10oC to 6 with air at 25oC • Installation cost of ASHP cheaper than GSHP • Running cost of ASHP cheaper than GSHP • Conclusion - Install ASHP
    • Funding • Microgeneration Certification scheme - MCS – Approved product + approved installer – ASHP £900 – GSHP £1200 • CERT – Energy supplier • Carbon Trust Loan – Interest free loan over 4 years – Payback based on energy saving achieved
    • Summary • 1kWh of electricity can deliver over 4kWh of renewable energy from the ground • Proven technology with case studies to back up performance • The lowest running cost system for “off gas” network areas • Huge savings on running costs • Huge savings on CO2 emissions • Long life, low maintenance, sustainable technology.
