Sky documentary showcases the role of heat pumps
We’re excited to announce that our Managing Director, Laura, has been chosen to feature in a national documentary looking at the role of ground source heat pumps.
As a leading expert in her field and chair of the Ground Source Heat Pump Association, Laura is one of several experts taking part in the new Sky documentary, which is part of a wider series focusing on renewable energies.
The documentary will be filmed at Oxford University and explore how systems can be used in business, education, and domestic settings to open up questions about their use as well as the benefits of greener technologies.
“It is an absolute honour to get the opportunity to take part in the documentary. Heating contributes to around 25% of all carbon emissions in the UK. If we are to change that, it is important that we continue to open the dialogue around ground source heat pumps, demystify the jargon and help people understand the benefits.”
Laura Bishop, Managing Director at Infinitas
According to the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), if the UK is to meet its Net-Zero carbon targets, around 18% of the UK’s heat will need to come from heat networks by 2050.
Heat pumps are a cost-effective way of providing reliable, efficient, low-carbon heat.
The program will feature both commercial and domestic installations, with Laura providing expert commentary to explain their uses and create more understanding of the industry.
“I am passionate about demystifying the world of heat pumps. There are so many myths out there about how they work, so programs like this are important in providing jargon-free, factual details which bring the industry to life.”
The documentary will be filmed at Oxford University, which is one of six organisations behind the Energy Superhub Oxford project. The world leading project aims to eliminate 10,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions a year – the equivalent of 2000 cars.
Innovative small shoebox ground source heat pumps have been installed to show how carbon can be eliminated when heating homes and businesses and it is part of Oxford’s commitment to becoming a net zero city by 2040.
The program is being filmed in August and is due to be aired on Sky later in the year.
