Baxi Heating takes home innovation award

The award, from the Innovation category was awarded for the Lancashire-based company’s hydrogen boiler, which was developed as part of its commitment to move away from traditional nature gas fired boilers in order to be a cleaner, greener manufacturing business.

Karen Boswell OBE, Managing Director of Baxi UK and Ireland, has been appointed as the new chair of the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council (HHIC), becoming the first female chair of the organisation.

“As a leading player in the British heating and hot water industry, we are determined to play our part in achieving the goal of being a net-zero company,” said Karen Boswell, managing director of Baxi Heating.

“We are developing technologies that will help customers to heat their homes and businesses without warming the planet and hydrogen should play an important role as it produces no greenhouse gases at the point of use.”

Baxi launched its sustainability pledge last year, which ensured that all of its products will work with low carbon energy by 2025. The company also manufactures boilers that run on 20% hydrogen and 80% natural gas.

With the ban on traditional gas boilers imminent, what do you think will be the most widely adopted replacement – heat pumps or hydrogen? Vote in our LinkedIn poll here, or contact
