Open-loop ground source heat pump viability screening map

Web map services (WMS)

Open-loop head pumps

British Geological Survey (BGS), in collaboration with the Environment Agency (EA), has developed a web-based tool that provides an indication of whether suitable conditions exist in a given area for Open-loop Ground Source Heat Pumps (GSHP). The tool is developed within a GIS and maps the potential for open-loop GSHP installations (heating/cooling output >100 kW) in England and Wales at the 1:250 000 scale.
