100% CARBON FREE HEAT AND 20% REDUCTION IN ELECTRICITY PRICE
Commercial and industrial buildings can achieve both these objectives with a Clade heat pump plus services from our energy and AI partners.
A heat pump reduces the input energy needed to create heat for the building by approximately two thirds. Swapping gas for electricity and using a green tariff removes the carbon from the input energy. It is both the efficiency of heat pumps and the electrification of heat that achieves 100% carbon reduction.
As more heat pumps (up to 600,000 per year by 2028) and electric vehicles are connected to the power grid, and as more renewable generation replaces fossil fuels, both the supply and demand for power have to become flexible or there will be peaks of demand that cannot be met and oversupply of power at other times. Delaying, stopping or slowing down heat generation is rewarded during times of peak demand and in the opposite case bringing forward heat generation during times of over supply is rewarded.
Currently these flexibility services are available to large power users but Clade Cloud, through co- ordination and control of multiple heat pumps and thermal stores, will enable smaller users to benefit.
