Industry experts explain how this new technology may be the way forward, leading to significant reduction in energy usage and associated cost savings.

Time: 11.00am to 12.30pm
Aquatic centres are a great place to exercise, but their year-round heating and cooling needs, to maintain the water temperature at a comfortable level, is extremely energy intensive.
High efficiency heat pumps represent a promising solution to this huge challenge. In aquatic centres, heat pumps can simultaneously supply heating and cooling services and help councils to transition from gas and use more renewable electricity, both important steps for reducing fossil fuel emissions and long-term energy costs.
Local Government Procurement (LGP), Australian Alliance for Energy Productivity (A2EP), NSW and Regional Development Australia (RDA), Sydney, have organised industry experts to talk you through how this new technology may be the way forward, leading to significant reduction in energy usage and associated cost savings.
This is an excellent opportunity for local government sustainability managers, facilities managers, asset managers and related council staff to hear first-hand how other councils have introduced this technology and brought about energy and cost savings in their aquatic centre operations.
The webinar will cover:
- Common energy challenges faces by aquatic centres
- An understanding of what a heat pump is and how it works
- Challenges associated with implementing heat pumps
- Lessons learnt and experience from other councils who have utilised this technology
- Funding opportunities
- Business case development for transitioning to heat pumps
