NEW! The ParkPower Findings Report has been published. Read the press release and go to publications to read the report.
greenspace scotland is working with a wide range of partners on a strategic, Scotland-wide programme to explore the contribution that parks and greenspaces can make to the Scottish Government’s ambitions to decarbonise the energy system.
The ParkPower programme emerged from a previous research project looking at the development of climate resilient greenspaces. This led to feasibility work to understand the potential for heat pump technology to support the heat demands of buildings sited in and around urban greenspaces.
The current phase of the project, financially supported by the Rethinking Parks prototyping programme, is looking at how data-driven models and decision-support systems can help those managing portfolios of greenspaces to identify those sites with the most potential to provide energy services and generate long-term income and savings.
