Mitsubishi Electric has received another environmental accolade for its Ecodan renewable-heating system. This air-source heat-pump system for homes won the Product Award category in the 2010 Vision in Business for the Environment of Scotland Awards (VIBES) — the 11th year of these awards.

John Kellett, general manager of the company’s domestic heating systems department, comments, ‘This is another endorsement of the important role Ecodan can make to lowering fuel bills and reducing the nation’s carbon emissions house by house.

The award was collected by Rodney Ayre, European environmental manager at the company’s factory in Livingston in Scotland, where Ecodan units are manufactured. As part of the judging process, the factory has to undergo a full assessment of the environmental impact of its manufacturing as part of the judging process. Ecodan is the first UK-manufactured ASHP to achieve an Ofgem carbon score, which can be used for CERT Funding.
