So Ecobuild is complete for another year and for us and it was a successful show. Now we steam ahead with the new prospects we have on our hands to turn these conversations into real live projects. We really enjoyed meeting some new potential partners and customers as well as catching up with our existing partner network – so thanks to those who could make it to see us on our stand.
If you did manage to visit us you will know that we were showcasing a few of our new product additions for the very first time. The Mercedes Benz Energy storage battery was first seen in the UK – and wow! What a response we had, it was especially interesting to meet many representatives of the PV industry who were thrilled to see and hear all about the new storage battery now available from us in the UK.
Second was our Sokratherm gas CHP GG50 unit – now this really is an impressive piece of kit, with overall efficiencies of up to 96% our stand visitors had some exciting projects in mind that this technology would be perfect for – schools, distilleries you name it! We had many interesting discussions and nothing was too much for Tobias of Sokratherm who especially made the trip to pass on his passion for the product and answer any really technically advanced questions.
Aside from these two products we had the newly restyled ETA PU 7 biomass boiler, an ETA PE-K 110kW biomass boiler and the IDM iPump which is a combined ground and airsource heat pump also achieving incredible efficiencies. We have researched long and hard to discover and get on board what we think are the best and most advanced renewable energy and efficient power solutions available on today’s market so we were really proud to have been able to show them off at the UK’s largest show for the construction and energy market.
Here is a short interview with the Ecobuild organisers that stars Stuart Gibson, Innasol, Sales Director.
Aside from all energy efficient products outside of heating, there was one key theme that took us by surprise. How little the renewable heating industry was represented, biomass and heat pump technology in particular, at what is regarded as one of the leading shows for the industry. We always like to be surrounded by other players in our markets when we attend exhibitions, and as biomass and heat pump technology is currently our core business we were disappointed to not be surrounded by the positive energy of our industry peers who are also doing a great job for the renewable heating industry.
Why does this surprise us so much? Here are the two main reasons:
- Biomass and heat pumps are the only two technologies to provide heating and hot water in a renewable way. 38% of all UK carbon emissions come from this sector, so this is a key factor for the UK to reach any carbon targets – without biomass and heat pump technology the UK cannot significantly reduce its carbon footprint.
- 85% of energy consumption of an average UK household is used for heating and hot water – which is exactly what a biomass boiler and heat pump provide BUT at the highest efficiencies and as a result the lowest carbon emissions possible.
As with everything at INNASOL we’re proud of what we help to achieve, install and maintain every day. We are constantly improving our offering, always searching for the best in renewable energy and efficient power solutions, for our customers and our partners. By welcoming new technologies to our portfolio of exciting products, we have done exactly that.
Our next show is All Energy, 10th and 11th May at the SECC in Glasgow.! If you can’t make it to All Energy and would like to talk to us then please contact us to speak with a dedicated member of the INNASOL team.
