Ealing schools – Grange Primary
Ealing council has been so impressed with Dimplex ground source heat pumps at one new school that it has installed them at two further schools and is planning to have them at a fourth. And the installation of heat pumps means the building projects easily met the local authority's 10 percent renewable energy "Merton Rule".
Grange Primary School in Ealing is a larger than average primary school taking 510 pupils aged 4-11. It has recently undergone a £7 million rebuild programme and Dimplex heat pumps now provide 40kW of energy efficient, low carbon heat for the new school which is close to South Ealing underground station.
Kwasi Ofori-Amoako, Ealing Council's capital programme manager, school services, says: "We looked at various options to achieve the 10 percent renewable energy requirements including solar and biomass but the Dimplex ground source heat pumps
were the easiest and most cost effective way for us to meet the "Merton Rule" specification. "Grange Primary was the first school we used ground source heat pumps in and it's quickly become apparent that this is the cheapest and easiest way of achieving renewable energy requirements."
