Kensa unlocks gas-free home heating for the masses

By 2050, millions of UK homes will need to decarbonise their heating, and with the launch of its small and powerful Shoebox NX Ground Source Heat Pump, Kensa says it is unlocking a proven, net zero-ready solution.

Kensa’s solution – Networked Ground Source Heat Pumps – replicates the familiarity and accessibility of gas networks and enables the mass rollout of heat pumps in the UK, bringing low-cost renewable heating and cooling to almost any type of home, whether it’s a new build, a 19th century Victorian terrace, a tenement or a high-rise urban flat.

One-third of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions come from heat and 6.5 million homes are estimated to be in fuel poverty. Kensa’s solution will boost heat pump installations, shielding millions from unpredictable energy costs by replacing imported gas with domestically produced renewable electricity.

Tamsin Lishman, CEO of Kensa Heat Pumps, says, “This is a game-changing heat pump designed for the UK. Until now, achieving mass heat pump rollout has been a complex challenge, but with the launch of our Shoebox NX, we’ve engineered a small, high-performance heat pump that’s ready to replace gas as the main home heating choice.

“When combined with our Networked Ground Source Heat Pumps solution, it unlocks cosy homes in the winter and cooler homes in the summer for almost anyone, and at low costs to the consumer.

“For 25 years, Kensa has been pioneering Ground Source Heat Pump technology, and with the Shoebox NX, we’re ready to deliver heat pumps for everyone, cut household carbon emissions and make green home heating a reality.”

John Bromley, Managing Director – Clean Energy Strategy and Investments at Legal and General Capital, says, “Housing requires some of the most substantial and immediate overhauls of any industry to improve standards, reduce running costs for consumers, and reach net zero. The Kensa Group’s highly efficient, networked ground source heating and cooling will play a key part in this transition.

“As an experienced energy transition investor, we are proud to be supporting Kensa’s growth and we are delighted to see the launch of its latest ground-breaking Shoebox NX heat pump, a culmination of years of expertise and development.

“We share Kensa’s ambition to deliver reliable, efficient heating solutions for consumers, developers, housing providers, and more – taking us a step closer to decarbonising UK properties at scale.”
