EVINOX WINS INDUSTRIAL & COMMERCIAL HEATING PRODUCT OF THE YEAR 2008
Evinox were awarded best Industrial and Commercial Product of the Year for its Thermal Store Energy Bank at the prestigious H&V News Awards for Excellence.
The award was presented to David Whitfield, Managing Director of Evinox, at the Awards Ceremony held on Thursday 1st May at the Grosvenor House Hotel on London’s Park Lane. The evening was hosted by BAFTA award-winning comic, Rob Brydon, and was attended by a record number of more than 1100 guests from across the industry.
The Thermal Store Energy Bank, which was launched by Evinox in the UK in July 2007, emerged victorious in the hotly contested Industrial & Commercial Heating Product of the Year category, having beaten off stiff competition in the final from big names within the industry Vaillant and Hoval.
The Thermal Store Energy Bank is a unique, fully patented product, its function being to store a variety of alternative heat energy, particularly solar energy. It is highly efficient, both in terms of energy and cost.
The judges hailed the Thermal Store Energy Bank as “an important and highly versatile product” as it allows users to take advantage of a variety of renewable energy sources, and “future proof” because it can be adapted as necessary to take advantage of other renewable energy sources. Due to its unique technology, there are no directly comparable products available on the UK market.
Adam Northcroft, publisher of H&V News, commented: “In an era of rising fuel costs, new environmentally-led regulation and concerns we all share about the future of our planet, it’s fantastic and absolutely necessary to see the H&V sector rising to the challenge. We can make a difference in cutting carbon emissions and we are making a difference. The H&V News Awards winners celebrate excellence not just in this vitally important arena but across all areas of our industry.”
The H&V News Awards is organised by the industry magazine, H&V News and represents the benchmark scheme for recognising excellence in heating, ventilating and air-conditioning. It is judged by a panel of 14 independent experts headed by Peter Mayo, former head of Engineering at The John Lewis Partnership.
