Exploring the potential for using ground-source heat systems in public parks

This feasibility study explored the potential for Ground Source Heat Systems (GSHS) to provide renewable heat for community buildings while providing an ongoing revenue funding stream to deliver greenspace management in line with priorities identified by the community.

The report explores the potential for accommodating GSHS in three public park settings in Edinburgh and works through the most immediately workable of these three examples in more detail. 

It also draws on the experience of working on the Edinburgh sites to outline the factors most likely to contribute to a successful use of GSHS.
