Panasonic ‘sparks’ low carbon conversation

Panasonic has partnered with the ‘Sparks’ series of events, where UK college lecturers will ‘Meet the Manufacturer’ to discuss the merits of renewable heating technologies.

Taking place across the UK throughout January and February 2022, the Sparks events highlight the urgent need to encourage the new generation of engineers, installers and plumbers to embrace low carbon solutions.

By visiting Further Education Colleges across the UK, Panasonic aims to help college lecturers and faculty members to increase their knowledge and experience of low carbon solutions by providing details of its R&D programme, it said.

Richard Bishop, head of marketing for UK and Ireland, said: “Panasonic as a company is hugely enthusiastic about the environment and I believe we can help the UK meet its low carbon targets through supporting and advising the FE College lecturers who can pass on this knowledge to their students in each region.

“Switching technologies from traditional systems powered by mains gas, oil or LPG to an air source heat pump such as the Panasonic Aquarea Range, can deliver significant cost savings, improvements to heating performance and low sound levels. With heat pumps hitting the media headlines and following on from COP26, we have recently a seen a huge increase in demand from both homeowners and installers for more information and first-hand training.”
