Two north east-based renewable energy specialists have triumphed at the Energy Efficiency and Renewables Awards.

The Wood Heating Company, based in Cramlington, picked up the prize for Biomass Installer of the Year and North Shields’ Geowarmth was selected as Ground Source Heat Pump Installer of the Year.

The awards saw more than 300 of the industry’s biggest names gather at Friday’s ceremony to showcase the best talent within the renewable energy sector.

The Wood Heating Company is one of the longest-standing installers of biomass systems in the UK, with a heritage stretching back over 30 years.

Success at the Energy Efficiency and Renewables Awards comes after The Wood Heating Company was named Rural Installer of the year at the Heating and Ventilating News Awards earlier this year.

Mike Blakeley, managing director at the Wood Heating Company and sister company IXUS Energy, said: “We work hard to deliver the very best in customer service and provide well designed, efficient and cost-effective installations.

“To have this recognised nationally is a testament to the fantastic team we have.

“The Wood Heating Company’s sister company IXUS Energy, a biomass boiler distribution firm, for example, works on biomass projects with the north east’s other award winner, Geowarmth.

“The fact that two north east renewable energy installers have been recognised as leaders in our respective fields is more evidence that the region is leading the way with green heating technology.”

Geowarmth was shortlisted as Commercial Installer of the Year as well as winning the Ground Source Heat Pump Installer of the year category.
