Ice Energy is pleased to announce they have been shortlisted in two categories at the forthcoming National Energy Efficiency Awards. The event, which aims to provide public recognition for excellent work within the energy efficiency sector and encourages best practice, takes place at Birmingham's Hilton Metropole on September 16th with Ice Energy shortlisted in both the Renewable Heat Installer of the Year and Large Project of the Year categories.
Reacting to being shortlisted, Ice Energy Founder and Managing Director Andrew Sheldon said: "I am extremely pleased we have been shortlisted, providing as it does recognition for both a unique project tackling fuel poverty within social housing, and the large numbers of Ice Energy installations which qualify under the Renewable Heat Incentive scheme. I'm equally pleased to learn that Enfield Borough Council, our client in respect of the Large Scale Project, have been shortlisted for the Council of the Year award. This is fitting given their commitment to addressing fuel poverty and improving heating standards for their residents and I wish them the very best of luck."
The Exeter Road Heating Project saw ground source heat pumps replace old and expensive storage heaters and a district underfloor heating system across nearly 200 flats in four tower blocks in London. The new renewable energy heating systems are expected to deliver reductions in running costs of more than 80%. Ice Energy completed 716 heat pump installations in the 12 months to March 2016, with some 437 involving Government funding from schemes such as the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) or Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) schemes.
