Heat pump project earns two awards
A project linking ground source heat pumps to shared ground borehole arrays, which is a first in the UK, has earned two new accolades for the company that developed it.
Truro-based Kensa Utilities, a ground source heat pump infrastructure asset company, clinched two awards for its Heat the Streets project, which was part funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
At the H&V News Awards, the company received Heat Pump Project of the Year accolade alongside Coastline Housing.
Judges said: “Kensa developed a technical and commercial model that makes budgeting a cheap and simple solution for occupiers and owners alike,” adding: “The lessons learnt from this project will act as a benchmark for future schemes across UK.”
Kensa Utilities also secured the Best Home Energy Project title at the Fully Charged Awards in Amsterdam.
Earlier this year, the Heat the Streets project won the Lighthouse Heat Pump Award at the European Heat Pump Association’s 2023 Heat Pump Awards, as well as Green Heat Project of the Year at the BusinessGreen Awards.
