Uppark House – a case study by the National Trust

CaptureIn 2009  a biomass heating system was installed at Uppark House to provide heat to the east pavilion and main house.  At the start of the 2012 alone, Uppark passed the 600mWh mark for heat generated which will have saved a huge amount of CO2. Taking oil off the site has also lowered the pollution risk considerably.
