A low-carbon renewable energy scheme involving the retrofit of ground source heat pumps into 400 flats in eight tower blocks in the London Borough of Enfield has been named District Heating Project Of The Year at the 25th annual H&V News Awards held on April 25 in London.
The award-winning district heating scheme saw Kensa Contracting and ENGIE deliver England’s largest shared ground loop array heat pump program replacing electric heating for Enfield Council, all in under one year and while the flats remained inhabited.
The H&V News Awards, commonly referred to as the ‘industry oscars’, are the longest-running and largest ceremony for the UK’s building services. Competing against projects from GEM Environmental, Vaillant, Vital Energi, and Woodford Heating & Energy, the H&V News Awards judging panel described the Enfield tower block retrofit as, “a clear winner with demonstrable innovation, excellence in installation plus wide benefits to the client and residents.”
