This month’s issue includes a breakdown of all the winners from the 2018 H&V News Awards, as well as a look at how the recently launched Boiler Plus initiative may evolve to realise UK efficiency aims
The May issue of H&V News is now online, with a look at where the Boiler Plus efficiency standards may go following their recent launch and whether we may see a form of ‘Boiler Plus 2’ to help industry offer more efficient gas heating systems.
Speaking at a special event to launch Boiler Plus on April 6, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) said it would be immediately seeking feedback to understand any industry concerns about the new standards for boiler efficiency and mandatory controls.
Government representatives said at the time that this feedback is not anticipated to lead to the introduction of a Boiler Plus 2 due to BEIS’ own view that technical boiler standards have gone almost as far as possible with regards to energy efficiency. BEIS would however be open to the possibility of expanding the existing standards so that they apply to all gas boilers and not just combi appliances.
We also take a detailed look in the issue at all the winners of the H&V News Awards 2018 that were held at London’s Grosvenor House Hotel on Thursday (April 19). A total of 23 awards were presented on the night following earlier face-to-face judging with a panel of experts from across the supply chain.
