Heat Pumps; Don’t Forget The Cooling

Heat Pumps have long been touted as the most efficient method of converting electrical energy into heat energy, a vital element in our electrified future.

At GS Renewable our heat pump plant room converts 1 kilowatt of electricity into 4.5 kilowatts of heat on average. However, the real USP that often goes overlooked is that same heat pump can simultaneously produce 3.5 kilowatts of cooling energy, all for 1 kilowatt of electrical input energy!

Our heat pump is now offering us 8 kilowatts of usable energy at the cost of 1 kilowatt of electricity AND it’s doing it with as low as zero CO2 emissions depending on the source of your electricity.

Compare that to a gas boiler for heating which will provide only 0.9 kilowatts of heat for every 1 kilowatt of gas. Nowadays we can even achieve up to 140°c flow temperatures with heat pumps, satisfying high temperature demands that were previously only available in the realms of fossil fuels.

The use cases for this simultaneous heating and cooling are plentiful, we’ve worked on projects with distilleries, district heating systems, hotels, manufacturing and industrial processes and see customers achieve savings up to 80% on OpEx.

Economic incentives aside we have also seen many customers achieve up to 100% decarbonisation of their heating and cooling processes.

Peace of mind for our planets future (and your ESG targets) has never been closer!
