DWI Meeting Report - Green energy for beginners

Deal With It's Energy Group meeting about domestic renewable energy was very well attended by about 35 people and it was standing room only!

We were treated to an excellent presentation by Ian and David from Vaillant, leaders in both renewable energy and energy efficiency.

They told us about ground source heat pumps, solar thermal water heating as well as mechanical ventilation and heat recovery systems and explained about the Renewable Heating Incentives (RHI). Jason, our local 'green' plumber, explained the ethos behind his business and how he had moved into solar thermal technology to expand.

There was lots of time for people to ask questions and for one to one conversations between audeince and speakers while refreshments were served.

The Energy Group of Deal With It plans to offer help and advice to anyone in the Deal area who wants to consider greening their home or business, and believes that one day Deal could generate a large proportion of its own energy as does a similar sized town in Denmark!Contact us at

An excellent evening!
