cognise the potential of surface water heat pump technology, ensure that they do what it says on the tin and give a serious boost to the UK’s carbon emissions aims,” stated Phil Jones, Chairman, CIBSE Energy Performance Group. “The technology has long shown its usefulness as a way to reduce the cost of heating and cooling, save space and cut emissions but its historically low profile has often seen it overlooked. Now, as a result of this comprehensive CoP setting out best practice and minimum requirements, we have a strong case for the potential benefits based on clear standards that investors can have confidence in.”

Training courses to support use of the Code and SWSHPs have been developed by CIBSE and GSHPA. There is an introductory course for building owners/developers and energy managers as well as a more detailed course for designers and feasibility consultants. The courses are designed to be complementary and can be completed as a pair.
