Andrew Stunell praises energy-saving technology
Andrew Stunell, Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State at the DCLG showed his support for passive flue-gas heat recovery and its energy- and cost-saving benefits when he visited the factory of Baxi, a sister company of Remeha Commercial in the BDR Thermea Group. His responsibilities include the Building Regulations, and he had come to meet representatives of Zenex Technologies, Remeha Commercial and Baxi to find out how this heat-recovery technology in heating and hot-water systems can significantly improve the efficiency of even A-rated commercial and domestic boilers.
Chris Farrell of Zenex Technologies and Remeha Commercial’s independent technology adviser, which developed the system, gave live demonstrations of its integration into Remeha’s Quinta Eco Plus heating and hot-water systems. Following a tour of the factory to see the technology in production and an additional demonstration by Baxi of its application to domestic boilers, Mr Stunell said, ‘To come here and see it is really impressive. This is real stuff that really works. It’s British, and it can be built here. It gives me plenty to think about and discuss with my colleagues who share my passion for having a greener environment.
