The UK’s first micro-CHP course has been launched by national merchant Plumb Center.

The one-day training course will be available in three training centres across the UK. It covers both the theoretical and practical aspects of installing, commissioning and maintaining a Baxi micro-CHP boiler for domestic applications.

Baxi Ecogen uses a free piston Stirling engine to generate up to 1kW of electricity while also providing space heating and hot water, which is usually at times of peak electrical demand.

It is MCS certified and so is eligible for the government’s Feed-in Tariff, realising a generation tariff of 11.0p/kWh.

Plumb Center works in partnership with Sevenoaks Energy Academy to deliver a regular programme of BPEC-accredited renewables training courses around the UK. The micro-CHP course is available at training centres in Leamington Spa, Bristol and Sevenoaks.
