The Baxi Ecogen dual energy system has won both the Heating and Plumbing category and the Green Award in the Homebuilding & Renovating Product Excellence Awards 2011.
Michael Holmes, Editor in chief Homebuilding & Renovating Magazine and presenter of Channel 5 “I own Britain’s best home”, said: “The Baxi Ecogen
harnesses well established micro generation technology into a neat conventional size domestic boiler, offering households a way to generate their own clean electricity whilst heating their home and hot water. As it qualifies for the Government’s Feed-in Tariff (FITs) the Baxi Ecogen
could pay for itself within just a few years!”
The judges said: “[Baxi Ecogen
] deserved to win both [awards] because whilst this has obvious eco credentials it deserves to be taken seriously as a mainstream heating and plumbing solution.”
will be on display in the Awards’ central display area at the National Homebuilding and Renovating Show 2011 at the NEC in Birmingham from the 24th - 27th March 2011.
Graham Parkes, Head of Sales, Low Carbon
Technologies, said: “This tremendous result is further testament to the fact that the Baxi Ecogen
dual energy system is such a unique and innovative product.”
The Baxi Ecogen
Dual Energy System is a micro-combined heat and power (micro-CHP
) wall hung gas boiler, whichgenerates both electricity and heat from the same source close to where it is to be used. The first boiler of its kind available on the market, it is an easy replacement for a conventional gas boiler.
For electricity generation, it uses a Stirling engine that is heated by burning gas. Helium inside expands and contracts to move a piston up and down between a copper coil, generating up to 1kW of electricity at 50Hz single phase. Any electricity that is not used in the home can be exported back to the grid. It is MCS certified
so is eligible for the Government’s Feed-in Tariff.
