    Geothermal Heat Pumps

    17:30
    19:00

    Speakers: Dave Tucker, WDS Green Energy and Gareth Farr, British Geological Survey

    Venue: Faculty Lecture Theatre, Trevithick Building, Cardiff University

    CIWEM Welsh branch (supported by Geological Society) would like to invite you to attend an evening presentation on Mine Water as an Energy Source for Heat Pumps.

    Synopsis:

    Abandoned mine workings within the South Wales Coalfield are often flooded with groundwater  that has the potential to be a major energy source for heat pumps.  Baseline monitoring of a network of mine water discharges from abandoned mines has been undertaken by the British Geological Survey proving temperatures up to 19˚C at the point of discharge at the surface. Calculations by Cardiff University has shown there is some 65MW's of heat that could be exploited to meet demands from homes, offices, schools etc across South Wales.

    To demonstrate the use of this valuable energy source WDS Green Energy Ltd have constructed a combined domestic and commercial heat pump project at Crynant near Neath utilising water in the underlying old workings of nearby Cefn Coed Colliery. This project is the first of its kind in the UK and has been undertaken with technical support from theSeren ProjectTeam at Cardiff University, the Coal Authority and NRW, and as heat pumps are one of the renewable energy systems approved by the UK Government under their carbon saving programme, the client is eligible for Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) payments for 20 years.

    The talk will cover the design of heat pumps in general and how the Crynant project was conceived and developed and the benefits being accrued therefrom both environmentally and financially.

    Cost for the event is FREE and is open to non members. Light refreshments will be available from 5.30pm.  For further details please contact: Tracey Dunford, welsh@ciwem.org
