  • Autonomous companies – strong Brands – geography – broadly heading in same direction
  • …… strategic investment in UK IRL, R&D, HPs Newry
  • Note Clean grid electricity, renewable products with smart efficient /controls can make considerable contribution to EU 20-20-20 goals
  • M a r k e t d r i v e r i s b u i l d i n g r e g s C ode for sus homes raises the bar as regards carbon reductions, ongoing basis Social housing step ahead of private sector in that code 4 now for social housing Net zero and offset
  • Battle ground for low C technologies in the UK
  • Moving on to the first of two products which willl deliver this low carbon solution 10% group turnover due to HPs What it does 1kwe 3kwrenewables = 4kwh IE 400% efficient
  • Take energy from air, particularly welll suited to the high ambient winter temperature in the Uk IRL
  • The new SmartRad is a energy efficient alternative to standard radiators and under floor heating. Forced air over heat exchanger enables high heat op for low water temperature, good controllability
  • For a relatively small size gives good heat op at low water temperature
  • The large surface are heat exchanger allows an excellent amount of heat transfer to the air in the room even at low flow temperatures. The heat exchanger is connected to the central heating system via 15mm flow and return pipes. The routing of the pipes is very versatile: Through the rear of the product – ideal in new build – can’t see pipes Pipes through the bottom left of bottom right – highly flexible to allow retro fit of what already exists. Tangential fan boosts the heat transfer to the room from the heat exchanger. The speed of the fan, affects the heat output. There are 3 different speeds. Speed 3 is always used as a boost setting whilst speed 1 and 2 are used for heating. The controls allow the user to set the temperature and maximum fan speed.
  • Uses Boost to heat up room Uses medium and low speed to control room temperature Allows user to set max allowable speed
  • Note This shows how CO2 emissions per house will reduce to from 2005 to 2030 due to clean up of generation mix and more efficient use of electricity. Gas and Oil will not get any less CO2 intensive I this time Already in 2005, heat pump and solar technology makes electricity far less CO2 intensive than oil or gas. The 2030 scenario envisages one whereby the use of all options towards a low carbon energy system are considered – renewables, nuclear energy, CCS and energy efficiency measures
