Ground Source Heat Pumps
Dr Tom Pine
Ground Source Heat Pump specialist
Since 2004 Tom has been analysing and modelling ground source heat pumps and has helped publish several papers in this field. Prior to that he received a PhD investigating weight reduction in automotive structures to improve their efficiency and reduce emissions. Tom enjoys exploring Cornwall, cloud spotting and wave watching.
