An ‘ambient loop’ is: ‘…a heat sharing network at a low temperature that can be used to share heat between floors of buildings, or between different buildings. An ambient loop can be used to and make use of waste heat between buildings. E.g. an office building’s air conditioning system can reject heat an ambient loop, (rather than atmosphere), this heat can then be used by a neighbouring residential development.’
Ref ‘Climate Emergency Design Guide: How new buildings can meet UK climate change’, published by The London Energy Transformation Initiative (LETI) in January 2020.
