Our Technical Director Nick Critchley, was recognized for the outstanding, energy-efficient solutions provided to his customers, at Worcester, Bosch Group’s 16th annual E2020 Awards.

This year’s ceremony was held at the stunning Stanbrook Abbey in Worcestershire, where nominees were invited from across the country to see the winners revealed.

The E2020 Awards, which were established by Worcester in 2000, have been designed to promote best practice and reward those who have demonstrated their commitment to sustainable heating and hot water solutions, and renewable technologies.

Nick was the clear winner of the award due to his installation of a sustainable heating system with no reliance on fossil fuels in a brand new four-bedroom Scandihaus in Lincolnshire. His solution was the installation of a Greenstore ground source heat pump coupled with unvented cylinder and buffer vessel.

Nick took the opportunity to use a revolutionary radial borehole system which drills down into the earth from a single point in order to source sufficient geothermal energy to heat the property. Despite a challenging woodland setting and complex ground conditions, Nick was able to make the homeowners’ dream a reality.

Speaking of the award win, Nick commented:

“I knew that the Greensource ground source heat pump would prove to be the most cost-effective option for the property, which has sustainable technologies fitted throughout. The owners of the house are absolutely delighted with the fact that their home is warm all the time and has an abundance of hot water, yet costs them very little to run.”
