Our Award Winning Borders College installation
A Retrofit project installing into a heating system seeking to reduce carbon emissions
Backed by investment from Equitix and the UK Green Investment Bank, the SHARC heat recovery system intercepts wastewater from a sewer close to the local treatment works operated by Scottish Water.
The system uses a heat pump to amplify the natural warmth of wastewater and the heat produced is being sold to Borders College under a 20-year purchase agreement, producing savings in energy, costs and carbon emissions.
The system now provides around 95% of the heat needed by the Galashiels Campus and does not impact on the normal operation of the local wastewater network.
