Energy from Bath Hot Springs at the Abbey - September 5th

September 5th
Using energy from Bath's Hot Springs at the Abbey
Charles Curnock, Footprint Project Director, Bath Abbey

 It is proposed to take hot water from the Roman Great Drain, which would otherwise flow into the river, and use it, through a heat exchanger, to heat not just the Abbey but also other surrounding buildings, as part of a district heating scheme.
Buro Happold has been working with the Bath Abbey over the last three years to facilitate redevelopment plans which include the creation of linked spaces, a dedicated choir rehearsal room and modern catering facilities.  Integral to this redevelopment is a review of the existing heating system in line with the Abbey’s vision to reduce its energy consumption.
