The Thermapave system from Formpave is capable of increasing a buildings heating efficiency using natural and sustainable resources. The patented system for heat capture from stored water can be used to generate heat energy for your building, reducing the buildings reliance on gas or electricity. Powered by:

  • Type of Event

  • Event description
Put some “magic fluid” underneath a car park and turn it into an Energy Centre.

By harnessing the energy in rainwater we can heat and cool buildings in an extremely energy efficient way, cut our energy costs, and minimise emissions.

Incorporating Ground Source Heating Technology in car parks and roads turns areas of hard landscaping into valuable energy sources which are also incentivised by the Government. This is made possible with the Aquaflow Thermapave™ renewable energy system which uses Hydromx™ nanotechnology heat transfer fluid.

Visit the Formpave demonstration facility to see how it works and the efficiency achieved as part of a study by the Energy Savings Trust which concludes at the end of May.

  • Area of innovation being demonstrated
Low carbon energy efficient heating and cooling

  • Who should attend?
The event will appeal to anyone with an interest in reducing energy costs and carbon emissions including property developers, local authorities, architects, environmental management, and building management professionals

  • Benefits of attending?
See first-hand how a buildings heating demand can be met by energy extracted from under your feet whilst mitigating local flood risk
