The HEAT Project launches an Exciting Heat Pump Research Project in Blairgowrie

The HEAT Project is exploring options for undertaking a heat pump project in the Blairgowrie area with funding from the Department of Business Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). BEIS is seeking new ways to encourage a higher take up of domestic heat pumps – this is the only Scottish project to get support.

Heat Pumps survey in Blairgowrie


A heat pump is a device that absorbs heat from the air, ground or water around a building and converts it into a form that can be used to heat your house. Heat pumps can produce three to four times as much heat as the electricity needed to run them and are therefore part of the government’s efforts to reduce carbon dioxide emissions from heating as part of tackling the problem of climate change.

Working in partnership with Power Circle

a Scottish social enterprise, we are looking specifically at the most cost-effective way to introduce heat pumps for the consumer. We will be looking at the feasibility of installing heat pumps in combination with roof top solar PV and battery storage to reduce the cost of running the heat pumps. The solar PV and battery will provide electricity to operate the heat pump which will reduce the amount of energy the heat pump needs to draw from the grid. The overall aim is to develop a model that makes the installation and operation of heat pumps more affordable and therefore available to more people in the community.

Over the next few months, the project team will be seeking feedback from the community on the proposals through questionnaires, focus groups and one to one discussions.
