This project explored the technical feasibility of implementing ground source heat pump systems to supply heat and hot water in the London area, as well as the viability of implementation in the Merton Council housing stock and community. We determined that the Merton Council should not implement the system, due to technical and financial limitations. However, the Council should use the promotional material we produced to educate housing associations and private consumers, encouraging them to consider using the heat pump system.
