Panasonic partners with British Gas in high efficiency heat pump solution for BASF Eco Home
Panasonic has partnered with Cool Planet, the renewable energy design and installation arm of British Gas.
The agreement will deliver an eco-heating solution for the BASF House, part of the Creative Energy Homes Project at the University of Nottingham.
Cool Planet has retrofitted Panasonic’s Aquarea air-to-water heat pump technology at this showcase home for housing innovation and energy efficient design.
The aim of the Creative Homes Project is to demonstrate compliance with the Code for Sustainable Homes using low energy principles from the PassivHaus standard.
Following the completion of testing on a biomass boiler, Cool Planet installed a 9 kW Aquarea monobloc unit in the BASF House in spring 2011.
