Scotland’s green spaces could make a significant contribution towards the country's 2045 net zero ambitions.
That's according to a new survey from Greenspace Scotland which says the quantity of heat that could be supplied annually from ground source heat pump systems located within green spaces across Scotland is estimated to be 4,600GWh, representing an additional 5.5% of the current total non-electrical heat demand.
The report shows 59% of green spaces are located within areas which are deemed suitable for heat networks and 69% of these sites are located within urban areas.
