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 phase supported by the Rethinking Parks prototyping programme looked 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.
The programme is now expanding to look at Green Heat in Greenspaces (GHiGs) - read the press release
