Daikin UK and Wolseley have signed a three year contract to supply local authorities and housing associations with renewable heating technology to meet CO2 emission reduction targets.
Daikin and Wolseley to cut UK
Daikin UK will supply its Altherma air source heat pump for installation in social housing units throughout the UK. Altherma is the first product of its kind in the UK and provides high efficiency heating and domestic hot water in residential properties.

Altherma is part of Energy4Life, a renewables package from construction materials supplier Wolseley. The two companies say Energy4Life offers social housing providers with a total low carbon heating solution that includes all related equipment and materials.

Under the partnership,which began in April, Daikin UK and Wolseley will work together on contractor suitability, training, project planning, equipment spares and logistics,as well as the supply of the Altherma unit.

Energy4Life is tailored to the needs of local authorities and their partners, including housing associations, local authorities and ALMOs, concerned with the retro fit and new build developments of the UK's public housing estate.

Social housing providers and developers have been set targets for energy efficiency and CO2 reduction in the 'Code for sustainable homes'. The Decent Homes Standard requires that 95% of all social housing in the UK be of a minimum standard, and the remainder improved soon after, by 2010.

'We believe Energy4Life is a pioneering arrangement that will provide the public sector with a truly cost-effective and sustainable solution that is a major step towards the zero carbon goal and will become the quality benchmark for private housing to follow,' said Scott Dorrall, new business development director for Daikin UK.
