IES – COP26 Fringe Event – Making River Source Heat Pumps Work – Operational Experience from UK Installations

9 November 2021 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Making River Source Heat Pumps Work


Joint meeting with the University of Glasgow

NB – We are running this as both an in-person event, numbers of attendees are capped at 50 due to Covid restrictions, and an on-line event

Synopsis: Queens Quay is a £250 million regeneration of the former John Brown shipyard in Clydebank. Designed to take advantage of its waterfront location, the development will feature a variety of mixed-use spaces and a pioneering district heating system. This system will utilise Scotland’s first major and the UK’s largest high temperature water-sourced heat pump.

But just how do these technologies work? In this lecture Dave Pearson will take a look at how heat pumps and district heating systems operate, and their application in the Queens Quay development in Clydebank and other locations.

Dave Pearson is Group Sustainable Development Director at Star Refrigeration.

A graduate in Mechanical Engineering with Business Management and European Studies with a Masters in Business Administration from Strathclyde he began his career with Howden Compressors in 1996. Moving to Star Refrigeration in 1999 saw Dave in a variety of roles from design to supporting the local team in Lowestoft at Starfrost, a spiral freezer manufacturer acquired by Star in 2003. Returning to Star’s head office in 2008, Dave helped the transition into heat pumps before leading the Star Renewable Energy focus on this market. Appointed as Group Sustainable Development Director in 2020, Dave added responsibility for Data Analytics and Group Sustainability to blend an external and internal focus across sustainable development. Dave is Chair of CeeD-Scotland a business to business to academia knowledge sharing group.
