Leading thermal storage company Sunamp delivered a hugely successful seminar to Glasgow Kelvin students and staff last week on their cutting-edge Sunamp Heat Battery technology which uses phase change material to provide space heating and hot water from both renewable and non-renewable energy sources.
Cramming the lecture theatre with almost 100 students and staff from Building Services Engineering – in this case Service & Maintenance and Plumbing – staff from Sunamp provided an engaging introductory session on their heat batteries, heat replacement and retention.
Sunamp are an innovative Scottish company with a truly global reach and made a memorable impression at the recent ‘Fully Charged Live’ event for the building services engineering industry. See more at https://www.sunamp.com/fully-charged-live-2018
Lecturer George Blacker, who helped to organise the seminar, was enthusiastic about how participative the Sunamp session was for students. He said:
“I think it’s great that the College now has strong ties with a cutting-edge company like Sunamp. The students got a lot out of it and it’s great that they have seen a practical demonstration of renewable energy sources as this is the way forward for the industry. We’re very grateful to Sunamp for their valuable time and effort in delivering such an engaging seminar and we look forward to continuing our work with them in the future.”
Stuart Cunningham, Installation & Training Manager with Sunamp, said:
“It was a pleasure to introduce our technology and our vision to the students and we thank Glasgow Kelvin College for the opportunity. It is important that the next generation of engineers have an understanding of how products like ours are set to make big changes in their sector. That the students were interested and engaged in our technology was evident in the many thought-provoking questions I received at the session.”
The introduction of renewable energy sources is a key component of all engineering-related disciplines and is becoming increasingly embedded within learning and teaching in these areas. It also aligns directly with the College’s Sustainability Strategy.
Staff from Sunamp videoed the Seminar and plan to upload it to their Youtube channel.
Thanks go to Sunamp and to the College staff whose hard work made the event such a success.
