Report: Heat Pump Project Lessons Learnt Report 2 (PDF 317KB)
This second Lessons Learnt report covers additional works beyond the intended scope including equipment installation and conversion to high voltage supply plus operational testing.
The Project involves installation of a heat pump and its integration with the site’s solar and battery storage system. The sites High Voltage (“HV”) power also must be upgraded. The HV upgrade will also facilitate more cost-effective installation of any future renewable assets on site particularly if they are to be installed further away from the interface with the grid. It will also allow for more straightforward delivery of excess renewable power back into the network if it is required for future grid demand/ frequency management.
