Sustainable energy use means more plumbing connections

 

At a recent visit to the Cloughjordan Eco village we saw how a sustainable community requries a new generation of water cylinders which connect to a district heating system. These 800 litre tanks contain a smaller 250 litre tank for domestic hot water and the outer tank is used for underfloor heating or radiators.

The image above only shows 30% of the connections to the tank. This evolution in heating design is matched by the evolution in heating controls which students of the Smart Sustainable Energy degree will study.
