A2EP site tour: commercial heat pump Installations - Melbourne

This event has passed Get tickets

Event description

More and more organisations are looking to heat pumps to efficiently supply heating and cooling services for a range of applications, including commercial applications. Join the A2EP team for a tour of a number of operational heat pumps to see this technology in action. Hear first-hand from end-users and technology providers about what is involved with transitioning to heat pump technologies. 

During this one-day bus tour we will visit a commercial office building, a heat pump training facility and a brewery to see the different commercial heat pumps installed and operating. At Automatic Heating's training facility we'll learn about heat pumps, how they can be installed and what will be required to operate and maintain them. 

The tour will be hosted by A2EP CEO, Jarrod Leak. Lunch and other refreshments will be provided and covered by the tour cost. The tour will also be a great networking opportunity with end-users, suppliers, government and consultants in attendance.

530 Collins Street commercial building

530 Collins Street, Melbourne
This commercial office building is managed by the GPT Group. Technology supplier, Energy Smart Water, will conduct the tour and outline how heat pump systems have been installed at the site to efficient supply domestic hot water for use in bathrooms and kitchen facilities for the tenants. ESW will also discuss how space constraints can be overcome for heat pumps to be used in commercial buildings to deliver energy and emissions savings.

Automatic Heating Training Pod facility

Automatic Heating Training Pod, Epping

Heat pump solution provider, Automatic Heating, will welcome us into its Training Pod and take us through how heat pumps work in a real-world setting with five different heat pump technologies to view, including CO2 and high-temperature heat pumps, and discuss their potential in the realm of sustainable heating solutions. The presentation will also cover the essentials of heat pump selection and system design and practical tips on operating heat pumps.

3 Ravens Brewery brewing hall

3 Ravens Brewery, Thornbury

In collaboration with consultant, Regenerate Engineering, 3 Ravens has undertaken a major energy upgrade as part of expansion plans. This tour will show attendees the chiller heat pump and thermal storage systems which are efficiently using waste heat and cooling in other parts of the process to significantly reduce energy cost. The upgrade is expected to allow 3 Ravens to quadruple production without an increase in energy costs.
