Rural Energy is the first company in the UK to complete the Combined Heat and Power (CHP) Design and Installation training course from Bosch Commercial and Industrial.
The course comprised of two days training for Rural Energy staff at Bosch’s headquarters in Worcester, and means the company is now a certified technology partner of Bosch Commercial & Industrial.
Paul Clark, managing director at Rural Energy, said: “We felt CHP technology offered the next step in providing energy efficient heating solutions with the training provided by Bosch helping us to ensure our customers receive high quality products and the best possible advice concerning their installations.”
Alex Parkinson, UK&I CHP manager at Bosch Commercial and Industrial, said: “CHP systems are becoming increasingly popular due to their ability to produce electricity and then use the generated heat, with the remainder stored in buffer tanks. This makes CHP an efficient solution especially when paired with a biomass as both the electricity and heat produced can be fully utilised helping to keep waste to a minimum.
“With Rural Energy as a technology partner we hope to develop a long standing relationship and are looking to build on the company’s history in renewables. Working together we hope to develop a complete anaerobic digestion biogas CHP offering as well as low carbon high efficiency energy centres.”
The CHP modules will now be offered alongside other Bosch technologies which support biomass systems, including the manufacturer’s commercial boilers which are often used as peak load and backup sources of heating and hot water.
