Baxi receives Queen's Award for Enterprise in Innovation for Ecogen

The prestigious accolade is for the Baxi Ecogen micro-combined heat and power (micro-CHP) boiler.

Using a Free Piston Stirling Engine, Baxi Ecogen is a like-for-like replacement for a conventional boiler which generates up to 1kW electricity that can be used in the home or exported back to the electricity grid. It is MCS certified so is eligible for the Government’s Feed-in Tariff, making it cost effective alternative as well as energy efficient.

Managing director of the Baxi’s UK residential boiler division, Andrew Keating, said: “We are really proud of this fantastic achievement. It is testament to the commitment and hard work of our teams in Preston, who have brought Baxi Ecogen, the first domestic appliance of its kind, to the UK marketplace.

“We believe it heralds the most important step-change for the home heating industry since the condensing boiler and will be a key factor in delivering a sustainable, low carbon future for the UK.”
