"The first in the UK to use low temperature PV-T"

The Chetwode Road "Applewood Respite Centre" was one of the first Carbon Free Group's projects, delivered in partnership with URS (formerly Scott Wilson). The Carbon Free Group was engaged on the project to provide technology and support in order to increase the BREEAM target for the building.

The project was the first in the UK to use low temperature PV-T (PowerVolt) - in fact for this project both PowerVolt and PowerTherm were used. Due to the nature of the building and its use, the building has very high hot water usage so the PVT is offsetting as much of the demand as possible.There is a total of 7.15kW of PVT used on the project supported by a 25kW ground source heat pump and backed up by a conventional gas boiler.

Technology Deployed

  • 3.85kW x PowerVolt
  • 3.3kW PowerTherm
  • 3 x Steca 2000 Inverter and slave
  • 25kW Ice Energy Heatpump
  • 1 x Emergency heat dump fan coil unit
  • Gas Boiler
