THE world’s largest industrial air source heat pump will be one of the most eye-catching of exhibits at the UK’s largest renewable and sustainable energy exhibition and conference, which is being held at Glasgow’s Scottish Exhibition and Conference Centre on 4 and 5 May. Developed by Glasgow-based Star Renewable Energy in collaboration with Glasgow Housing Association – one of the largest social landlords – Scottish Gas and WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, the US-based global engineering and design consultancy, the pump extracts heat from the outside air and will be used to retrofit high-rise buildings. “It measures over 8m long and will produce enough heat for 350 flats,” explained All-Energy Event Director, Jonathan Heastie of organisers Reed Exhibitions. Heat and biomass – fuel developed from organic materi als – will be two key areas of focus for the All-Energy 2016 event, which is free of charge to all with relevant business or professional interests.
