More than 100 free open house events will take place across the UK next month to celebrate the 10th year of SuperHomes, the award-winning national network of over 200 homes that have all reduced their carbon footprint by a minimum of 60%.
Since 2007, 222 homeowners have all transformed their properties through environmentally-minded renovation, resulting in lower energy bills, smaller carbon footprints and a huge increase in comfort levels.
Viessmann installers from England and Germany recreated one of the world’s fiercest international football rivalries at Huddersfield Town’s training ground.
But any hopes the English installers had of repeating the success of the 1966 World Cup team were dashed as the visitors stormed to an emphatic 6-1 victory.
Daikin UK celebrated a decade of its Daikin Altherma heat pump range and the success of its KEY Associate and Partner scheme at an exclusive event in Birmingham on the 8th September.
The conference featured market insights from Senior Analyst at Delta-ee, Steven Ashurst and an interactive polling session to gain market feedback from KEY installers, so it provided a valuable opportunity to share views on the future direction of the heating and renewables market.
A global leader in delivering solutions that increase energy efficiency in buildings, introduced a new range of York absorption chillers (YHAU) and heat pumps (YHAP), with the most diverse, modern and flexible offering to the European market.
These units can use a variety of driving heat resources like hot water, steam, gas, light oil or exhaust gas. Both the YHAU chillers and YHAP heat pumps use water as refrigerant, which results in zero ozone depletion, and makes these units highly sustainable and efficient.
Common applications include industrial processes; combined heat and power (CHP); commercial buildings; turbine inlet air cooling and district energy systems.

The ASHRAE UK Midlands Section in association with the IOR, CIBSE West Midlands, BSRA, and the BEI (Birmingham Energy Institute) is holding an evening technical meeting titled "Low carbon district heating" by Dr Andy Pearson, who recently became a Fellow member of ASHRAE.
There has been a rapid and remarkable increase in discussion of industrial-sized heat pump systems for district heating in the UK over the last three years. Heat networks are not a new idea but they have traditionally been seen as a very “un-British” way of delivering domestic heating.
“Since writing my last column, I have had a busy couple of months working alongside colleagues at the Institute. Part of my role as Director of External Affairs is to spend time in London strengthening relations with contacts at Government level, with a view to highlighting the valuable work being carried out by members of the Chartered Institute of Plumbing and Heating Engineering (CPIHE) on a daily basis - be they installers, merchants, colleges, lecturers or students.
“My focus at present is to highlight the role that professional installers fulfil in society, which is twofold. On one hand, plumbing and heating engineers are there to ensure that people are comfortable in their own homes, as they have the qualifications and skills to install the latest heating technologies and bathroom products that make living a certain quality of life possible for the general public
Delta-EE, the decentralised energy market consultancy expert, is forecasting that the market for gas 'boiler only' solutions for space heating will decrease by 22% by 2025.
However, Delta-EE is anticipating that the number of low carbon technology units, including ground and air source heat pumps, hybrids and gas heat pumps, will increase to 1.5m unit sales per year in the same period. The residential heating market data comes from the consultancy's research covering the UK, Italy, the Netherlands, Germany and France.
Delta-EE also anticipates that sales of heat pumps in the UK will increase from around 18,000 units a year now to nearly 50,000 units a year by 2017. Nearly 1.5 million gas boilers are sold each year in the UK, which puts some perspective on the domestic heat pump market here.
Heat pump specialists can learn more about the market in the Delta-EE webinar running on 5th December 2014 at 0930 am (GMT). Click here for details.
Over 150 people attended the 'Harnessing Heat from Rivers' seminar in the James Watt building at Glasgow University on Wednesday this week.
Experts from the industry presented information and ideas to help organisations with heating bills of over £200,000 per year lower them by using heat pumps to extract the abundance of renewable heat from lochs and rivers in Scotland and the rest of the UK. Topics included how to get through the legislative and bureaucratic hurdles; how to plan for a heat pump system and finance large scale heat pump projects.
