HVAC technology is central to carbon cutting efforts, according to Top 10 lists in the New Scientist and the Guardian.
The New Scientist article profiles 10 ways to save the world and includes solar energy, combined heat and power, and super-efficient homes (citing the PassivHaus movement as a leading example) alongside broader technology such as wind power, biogas stoves and electric cars.
The Guardian’s list tackles 10 energy myths and advocates solar power and combined heat and power as well as insisting that existing homes rather than new new homes are where the biggest carbon reductions can be made.
HVAC technology is clearly key in achieving carbon targets and thanks to H&V News and the H&V09 show - the most comprehensive exhibition of hvac equipment ever staged in the UK – you can vote for your low carbon champion.
Over the last six months we've asked H&V News readers to nominate a long list of low carbon hvac technologies. We've narrowed this list down and have featured the top 10 H&V technologies.
Low Carbon Solution 1 - Ground Source Heat Pumps
Low Carbon Solution 2 - Solar Thermal
Low Carbon Solution 3 - Air Source Heat Pumps
Low Carbon Solution 4 - Biomass
Low Carbon Solution 5 - MicroCHP
Low Carbon Solution 6 - Micro Wind Turbines
Low Carbon Solution 7 - Condensing Boilers
Low Carbon Solution 8 - EC Motors
Low Carbon Solution 9 - Natural Ventilation
