The Zeroth Energy System - An ambient heat network solution
The Zeroth Energy System
The Zeroth Energy System is a proven solution that utilises a central ambient loop to supply energy to in-apartment heat pumps. These uplift the energy from the central loop to provide space heating, domestic hot water, and cooling to residential apartments.
This market leading solution is already installed in projects in the UK, helping to reduce carbon emissions and improve the energy efficiency of new residential developments.
Design guide for the Zeroth Energy System
To ensure the efficient and cost-effective design of an ambient network solution, diversity factors need to be correctly considered when calculating the energy demands of the development.
TÜV SÜD and Wallace Whittle, in collaboration with GDHV, have compiled a design guide that assists with the correct sizing, system design and effective implementation of the Zeroth Energy System, highlighting the main considerations and calculations that need to be made.
