Plans to use canal water to cool buildings throughout Britain may be made possible through research at Huddersfield University.

Technology experts there have been using water from the Huddersfield Narrow Canal for 30 years to cool faculty buildings.

The man who led the team, Prof John Fieldhouse, now retired, said There were some question marks regarding the return of heated water into the canal affecting aquatic life and the steering of Canal Boats, but these have now been overcome with the use of diffusers.

Progress with the work at Huddersfield University, has led to British Waterways signing an agreement with Linden Environmental to promote the use of canal water for waterside buildings.

Paul Adams, marketing director of Linden, comments Modern buildings can often cost more to cool in summer than to heat in winter.

Using canal water to cool large buildings can dramatically reduce air conditioning costs, minimizes the impact on the environment and provides better working conditions for staff.
