De Montfort University have installed the Zero Carbon Solution technology in a test house at their Leicester Campus. The system is to be studied by a team of experts from the university’s Institute of Energy and Sustainable Development (IESD), a world leading energy research institute.
They will be collecting information for research and teaching, gathering data on the temperature and electrical output of the solar panels, the performance of the thermal system including the heat pump, and the heat flows within the Earth Energy Bank. These studies will continue for some years to analyse seasonal performance of the entire system. These on going studies will continue to provide important academic underpinning for the technology, driving further development.
