First Fossil Fuel-Free Major Property Estate

This project is set to be the UK’s first fossil fuel-free major mixed-use property estate, all eight buildings across the development will be powered by electricity derived from renewable resources, producing zero emissions in operation.

Features of the Fossil Fuel-Free Mixed-Use Estate:

  • All buildings across this estate will be electric and use air source heat pumps. The first on this scale for a mixed-use development in the UK.
  • Use of a low-temperature, 5th generation energy network across the 5.5 acres of the project and the 5 different building use types, will create unprecedented energy sharing benefits. These benefits will subsequently provide energy efficiencies and significant savings.
  • Net zero carbon in operation with electricity from renewable sources.

The contractor assisted in the design development from Combined Heat and Power (CHP), which use fossil fuel (natural gas), to Electric Air Source Heat Pumps (ASHPs) to enable this achievement.
