Mitsubishi Set For Oil & Renewable Energy Show
25th August 2012
Mitsubishi Electric will be showing off the full range of Ecodan air source heat pumps at the Oil & Renewable Energy Show 2012 on 17/18 October 2012 at the Manchester Central exhibition and conference venue, to highlight what the company claims is the 'tremendous business opportunity' that renewable heating offers to the industry.
The company's stand will not only exhibit the residential range of systems, which remain the only air source heat pumps to receive the Noise Abatement Society's prestigious Quiet Mark, but will also showcase the commercial Ecodan CAHV heat pump boiler, which is fully scalable from 43kW up to 688kW.
The factory-sealed unit allows for straightforward installation without the need for any refrigeration work on site. Built-in weather compensation enables better control and increases the efficiency to deliver year-round high performance.
Mitsubishi claims that the Ecodan system will deliver renewable heating for both new-build and retro-fit properties in the commercial and residential sectors. The system has already been installed in thousands of residential properties in the UK, from the Shetlands to the Isle of Wight, in everything from bungalows and detached homes to a 13-storey tower block in Glasgow.
Commercially, Ecodan is increasingly being used and specified in commercial properties such as schools, showrooms and office developments that need to demonstrate an effective level of renewable heating.
"Adding an Ecodan or using it to replace an existing heating system can help buildings achieve renewable energy targets and help meet building regulations such as Part L and the Code for Sustainable Homes," explains Graham Temple, Marketing Communications Manager for the company's Heating Systems Division. "As heating accounts for over half the energy used in the UK's buildings, it is an area where real improvement in energy consumption can be achieved.
"Heating engineers who have adopted renewable technology are now poised to take advantage of a tremendous new business opportunity as the market grows," he adds.
Mitsubishi claims that Ecodan can operate effectively with outdoor temperatures as low as -20°C and in addition to helping new-builds achieve planning permission, the range can be retro-fitted to existing buildings, and will work independently or alongside other heating systems.
Organised by A&D Publishing Limited, publishers of Renewable Energy Installer and Oil Installer magazines, the Oil & Renewable Energy Show promises to bring together leading names from across the off-mains energy industry. Supported and sponsored by Kingspan, Plumb Center, Parts Center, Riello Worcester Bosch and Warmflow; confirmed exhibitors include Anglo Nordic, Bunded Tanks, Carbery Plastics, Dunraven Systems and Ecoflam. Leading industry trade associations will also be present including the Federation of Petroleum Suppliers and HETAS.
