The Carbon Trust

ICAX™ provided heating and cooling for this 4,000 square metre Primary School. The technology is featured in the Department for Education "Schools for the Future" bulletin, and it is anticipated that IHT™ will help to reduce emissions in a new generation of schools.

ICAX Ltd received a major Carbon Trust Award to enable Interseasonal Heat Transfer to be installed at Howe Dell School, Hatfield.

David Casey of the Informed Executive writes of the creation of an eco-school.
