The Crichton Quarter Local Heat Energy Network Project
The Crichton Trust has secured funding from The UK Community Renewal Fund to assess the feasibility of a Neighbourhood Energy Scheme and has established The Crichton Quarter Local Heat Energy Network Project.
It is understood that the Dumfries Basin Aquifer could provide an accessible supply of low-grade heat at shallow depths that could be utilised as a source of renewable heat for The Crichton, so The Crichton Trust intends to assess the feasibility of capturing this heat and distributing it to the estate via a Local Heat Energy Network.
Due to the rising and fluctuating gas prices as a result of various external factors, The Crichton Trust has decided to accelerate their programme for the development of a Local Heat Energy Network for The Crichton Quarter with the intention of increasing energy security, reducing the cost of heating and power and to progress with their goal of becoming carbon neutral.
The Crichton Trust is therefore keen to explore the full potential for heat network(s) for The Crichton Quarter, for both the short and long-term and a feasibility study is required by December 2022.
Opportunities to support this work include a Heat Network Study and a Borehole Campaign. These initial studies should be sufficient to enable The Crichton Trust to determine whether to progress with more detailed techno-economic feasibility work.
