Ground source heat pump company expands into Scotland

Kensa – a Cornish manufacturer and nationwide delivery partner of ground source heat pumps – has expanded into Scotland with the appointment of Scottish community heating specialist Matthew Black in Glasgow.

In an emailed press release on 22 August, Kensa announced the appointment of Black and explained that deployment of ground source heat pumps is particularly effective at alleviating fuel poverty in rural areas.

Kensa has developed shared ground loop arrays – a form of district heating connected to a communal ambient temperature pipework infrastructure that can deliver ultra-efficient and low-carbon heating with no heat losses.

Black, who has 10 years of experience delivering community energy schemes, said: “Shared ground loop arrays are the most effective solution for delivering Scotland’s ambitions for the decarbonisation of heat. Along with the right policy changes in Scotland we can make significant progress towards Scotland’s 2045 net-zero carbon target and beyond. The race to decarbonise electricity in Scotland has made considerable progress. The race to decarbonise heat and transport is on!”
