Chris Huhne, Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, recently visited the Southampton offices of Dimplex.
The visit involved the discussion of energy issues and the need for energy efficient heating solutions for the low carbon buildings of the future, the company states.
The meetings were followed by a tour of the manufacturer’s facility, where Mr Huhne viewed the selection of products supplied by the company.
Stuart Mackenzie, Dimplex managing director, said: “As concerns over the UK’s energy supply and the challenges of low carbon construction increase, it’s important that government and industry work together to achieve the tough targets ahead.
“The government’s own 2050 Pathways document earlier this year pointed to an electric future with heating and transport moving away from a dependency on fossil fuel, so we’re pleased to have this opportunity to show Mr Huhne how these demands translate into real-life, low energy heating and microgeneration solutions.”
