Design for Castle Park Depot

This project will establish the options for developing the Castle Park Depot site to a mixed use development to incorporate a Water Source Heat Pump (WSHP) led energy centre combined with residential and/or commercial development.
BCC are installing heat networks across the city in order to support the Mayor’s goal for Bristol to be a carbon neutral city by 2030 and to reduce fuel poverty.
This ‘Castle Park Depot’ energy centre will serve the Old Market Network (OMN). Due to the proximity next to the water this is a critical location for installing a WSHP. The water source heat pump is key to decarbonising the wider heat network critical for city goal to be carbon neutral by 2030.
