Attleborough renewable heating expert shortlisted for two top national awards
Attleborough-based renewable heating company Finn Geotherm, has been shortlisted for two prestigious national awards for heat pump projects undertaken for Flagship Group housing association and West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village.
Finn Geotherm is a double finalist in The Energy Awards 2021, which reward excellence in the energy business, from new energy efficient products and technology to local authority initiatives and commercial and residential installations.
The company has been shortlisted within the Residential Energy Project of the Year category for Finn Geotherm’s largest heat pump installation to date – a six-phase, £1.4million ground source heat pump project for 113 homes on Flagship’s Grange Farm housing estate in Felixstowe. Using a district heating scheme that provides heating and hot water for each property from a central heat pump system, the project has cut heating bills, energy use and carbon emissions all by 70%.
Finn Geotherm has also been shortlisted within the Public Building Energy Project category for a ground source heat pump installation at West Stow Anglo-Saxon Village near Bury St Edmunds. The project saw Finn Geotherm install a new renewable heating system with passive cooling, which ensures the visitor centre and café remains at a constant, comfortable temperature all year round – something that is particularly vital for preserving the facility’s precious artefacts. Energy use and carbon emissions have been cut by 70%, bolstering West Suffolk Council’s commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
Guy Ransom, commercial director at Finn Geotherm said: “We are delighted to be shortlisted for two Energy Awards. Both installations have made a huge impact not only in ensuring these sites are adequately and efficiently heated but also in delivering lower carbon emissions and reduced energy use. Installations such as this which require heat pumps to be retrofitted into existing buildings are often thought to be ‘too difficult’ but this just goes to show that any property can have a heat pump and can benefit from the brilliant features of this renewable technology. It was a privilege to install these systems and to be shortlisted for two top national awards is testament to the hard work of the entire team at Finn Geotherm.”
Winners of The Energy Awards will be announced in September. For more information on renewable heating and Finn Geotherm, visit www.finn-geotherm.co.uk.
