David Pearson | Director, Star Renewable Energy
Former Innovation Director of Star Refrigeration, Dave has led the business in the new segment of renewable heat. With projects around Europe totalling over 30MW, half of it at 90C, this venture is debunking a few myths around heatpumps; they can work and can go above 50C. Star are currently advising cities across the EU in how to copy the success of Drammen, perhaps even adding district cooling as well as heating. His view on renewable energy is simple; “we must deliver the three pillars of people, planet and profit if society is to embrace cleaner energy”. Large heatpumps from rivers and other low grade sources could deliver enough heat for most of the major cities in the EU. Dave is also a non-exec Director of CeeD-Scotland, a business to business knowledge sharing network totalling 200 members in Scotland.
