Open-loop ground source heat pump viability screening map

BGS Technologies — Web map services

In collaboration with the Environment Agency (EA), we have 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 was developed within a GIS and maps the potential for open-loop GSHP installations (heating/cooling output over 100 kW) in England and Wales at the 1:250 000 scale.
