Three projects in Shetland, Clydebank and Glasgow have been awarded £1.75m to extract heat from rivers and sea water. A £1.6m loan will help fund a large scale sea-water source heat pump in Lerwick, to allow 225 more households to join the existing heat network. A £75,000 grant will fund plans for a district heating network in Clydebank using heat from the River Clyde. Another grant of £75,000 will be used to develop an existing heating network in Glasgow using the River Kelvin. The Clydebank scheme is for the Queens Quay Development on the site of the former John Brown Shipyard.
