Next-gen heat pump could cut energy bills and carbon emissions
Published: 8 August 2022
Researchers from the UofG have developed a new type of heat pump, a flexible heat pump technology, which could help households save on their energy bills & contribute towards net-zero emissions goals. Heat pumps are a low-carbon alternative to gas boilers. They draw energy from external low temperature sources, most commonly outdoor air, in order to heat indoor spaces. When powered by renewable sources of power, they are significantly more environmentally friendly than conventional gas boilers.
