ParkPower Findings Report - the results of our 'opportunity mapping' work with Ramboll to assess the energy opportunities of Scotland's parks

ParkPark Methodology Report - the method for the strategic, data-driven 'opportunity mapping' approach used to sift large portfolios of greenspaces at local authority and national scale to identify the most promising sites for different energy technologies

The potential of ground-source heat pumps 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 of GSHS in three public park settings in Edinburgh and outlines the factors most likely to contribute to a successful use of GSHS. This study was supported by an Investing in Ideas grant from the Big Lottery Fund.
