The Ecogen micro-CHP from boiler and heating equipment manufacturer Baxi has won the Green Innovation Award at the Sustainability Now event.
A “virtual” – online-only – event, Sustainability Now provided keynotes, information, discussions and an exhibition around sustainability in the built environment and was attended by a record number of delegates, none of whom needed to leave their desks to take part.
Baxi Ecogen was one of nine products up for the award, all recent developments that the judges thought could make a difference and help the construction sector meet its sustainability goals.
Sarah Brook, Baxi Group Marketing Manager, took part in a webinar during the two day event, during which the winner was announced. “We are delighted to have received this prestigious accolade, especially in the face of such tough competition,” she said.
“We are convinced that micro-CHP is set to make a huge impact on the domestic heating industry, and are very proud of Baxi Ecogen, the first wall hung micro-CHP appliance available on the market which can be specified by local authorities, housing associations and private developers.
“It will help them meet Level 3 of the Code for Sustainable Homes, tackle fuel poverty issues more effectively and significantly cut carbon emissions. Developed and manufactured in the UK, Baxi Ecogen is a unique, world-class technology for the 21st century home.”
