The following projects were supported within Phase 1 to prepare feasibility studies, however they are not progressing under the Heat Pump Ready programme:

Greenwich thermal infrastructure motivating electrification (Greenwich TIME)

Element Energy Limited (UK)

This project aims to deploy networked heat pumps distributed on a shared ground array with a familiar finance offer to existing services, thereby decoupling the large capital costs of ground-source loops from customers and enabling consumers to replace their boiler with minimal household disruption. […]
