A retirement development in the heart of Cheltenham looks set to reduce the carbon emissions from heating by up to 75% following the installation of ground source renewable heat pump technology. The Lewis Carrol Lodge has been developed by Churchill Retirement Living and will officially open in Cheltenham in March. It is a collection of 65 new retirement apartments that will have the carbon intensity of its heating reduced by ground source heat pump technology. The Renewable Design Company (RDC) has installed that pump system at the development to extract heat from the earth to provide heating and hot water. According to the company, the heat pumps will produce 33 tonnes of CO2 annually, which is almost 100 tonnes less than that what would be generated by an electric heating system, equating to a 75% reduction in emissions.
