The Scottish Government is promoting district heating as a low carbon way of heating buildings to meet its long term carbon reduction goals. David Stutchfield, Sustainability Manager at the University of St Andrews, will discuss the design and operation of the biomass plant at Guardbridge and the district heating network providing heat to the University buildings at North Haugh and the halls of residence at David Russell Apartments and Fife Park. This is a unique opportunity to find out how the technology works and how it is helping the University meet its goal of carbon neutrality for energy in buildings.
