Through this partnership, APSE Energy hopes to ensure local councils are able to understand the benefits of ground source heat pumps and keep up to date with developments in the sector. Domestic heating remains a significant issue and a focus for government action, and heat pumps are a technology which can make a contribution to de-carbonising heat.
A three-time H&V News Award winner for district heating schemes, Kensa Contracting is renowned for its innovative fifth generation district heating systems featuring ambient shared ground loop arrays and ground source heat pumps, successfully deployed in thousands of social housing retrofits and social and private new build developments across the UK.
Leading the adoption of low carbon heat frameworks to achieve the UK’s net-zero carbon emissions target by 2050, Kensa Contracting recently expanded into Scotland with the appointment of Matthew Black (pictured).
APSE Energy recently hosted an on-site event with Enfield Council and Kensa Contracting, showcasing their ambitious project which involved the retrofit of eight tower blocks with ground source heat pumps. The event at Dorset House, Enfield, highlighted the benefits of using ground source heat pumps and covered a range of issues such as installation, capacity, tenant engagement and costs..
Speaking about our new Energy Partner, Head of APSE Energy Phil Brennan said that, “As a company with over 20 years’ experience in the sector and having worked with a number of local authorities, Kensa Contracting will be a huge asset to all of our members and especially those with responsibility for domestic heat, housing, fuel poverty and related matters.”
As Energy Partners, Kensa Contracting will appear at events and will be sharing their technological and industry expertise at a range of advisory groups and other meetings.
“Adding Kensa Contracting as a partner gives the APSE Energy membership access to a range of expertise in this technology and they will be contributing to the drive for excellence in local authority services”.
Stephanie Gregory, Director of Marketing at the Kensa Group, said,“In order to continue to provide affordable heat whilst meeting ambitious carbon reduction targets, all those in positions of responsibility have a duty to explore and utilise ‘green’ technology wherever possible. Ground source heat pumps are a tried and tested technology, the financial business case stacks up, and they offer the lowest carbon and running costs – so it’s a win-win for all concerned for now, and in the future, as the grid further decarbonises..
“We recognise APSE as a trusted brand and we look forward to the chance to engage with more councils across the UK. We have helped a number of local authorities and know there are many opportunities out there where ground source heat pumps will provide the ideal solution for heat provision from a clean energy source.”
