Two 20 foot diameter overshot water wheels driving a 5kw dynamo and a wood saw.
I need a water to air heat pump to use the river as my heat source. This being used for space heating in my well insulated barn. Yet there is no one in the UK who can supply me with a suitable water source heat pump. I really can't be bothered with designing and building my own heat pump. Surely there must be a company that offers a water source heat pump.? Sadly there are masses of companies that offer Air Source heat pumps, and want to remind me of the FIT scheme. For goodness sakes I want an efficient source of heat, not a useless consumer of electricity that won't work in the middle of winter.
Make the bureaucrats feel at home by listening attentively to their nonsense. Give them tea and cakes, and appear to like what they say. Then when they are gone just get on with what you want to do. The Environment Agency can be helpful, but try to avoid having anything to do with local government planners. They are expertly selected for a peculiar form of insanity that involves loss of common sense.
