A two-year project which has been trialling the use of sea water to air condition buildings in Brixham is coming to an end, and the results are now being disseminated.

The EuroSWAC project, aiming to enhance Sea Water Air Conditioning (SWAC) technology within the Channel area, is funded by the Interreg France (Channel) England Programme. In Devon, the project has been investigating the potential for using sea water to air condition buildings at Brixham Laboratory.

This technology could provide a cost-efficient and environmentally friendly air conditioning system using seawater from the English Channel – a plentiful renewable energy source.

Anyone with an interest in SWAC technology can attend EuroSWAC’s final free UK workshop in Brixham, 9:30am on Friday 10th February 2023. Find out more and register your interest here.
