Rinnai racks up record numbers for hydrogen CPD course
Hot water heating system outfit Rinnai has seen record levels of attendance for its newest continuing professional development (CPD) course, ‘Hydrogen and hydrogen blends as a means of decarbonising the UK energy network’.
Over 300 contractors, installers, specifiers and consultants attended the course in a six-week recent period.
The CPD follows Rinnai’s publication of a report on hydrogen as a clean source of energy. The report is available free on www.rinnaiuk.com and available on demand in either hard copy or electronically.
The hydrogen CPD and report specifies the significant national role and subsequent impact that hydrogen can affect in a societal and commercial context.
The Rinnai CPD cites the UK government’s ten-point plan, as well as the government’s ‘Powering our Net Zero Future’ energy White Paper as underpinning support for clean hydrogen.
The CPD details the UK government plans for introducing and rapidly expanding a hydrogen economy as a clean alternative to fossil fuels.
These plans include: the construction of a UK-wide network of operational stations which aim to reduce the cost of hydrogen by more than 20 per cent. This reduction will enable a drive by gas grid operation to heat a town entirely on hydrogen by 2030.
Rinnai offers a full range of CPDs for designers, specifiers and building services consultants & engineers working on any type of commercial sites requiring limitless flows of temperature accurate hot water for personal hygiene, laundry, food production and all other cleaning and disinfecting regimes.
The CPDs are available via Zoom or Microsoft Teams or - provided all safety measures are strictly observed and practised – via face-to-face meetings on site of the end-user, specifier or building services consultant and engineer.
The current list of CPD subjects is as follows:
• BioLPG - a cost-effective and feasible blend with zero emissions
• Continuous Flow Hot Water - an appreciation
• Energy Efficiency on Demand Hot Water – how it works and comparison to other systems
• Hot Water Heating Units & Systems - an appreciation
• Hot Water System Design – using continuous flow mode
• Continuous Flow Delivering Low Temperature – uses and legislation
• Precision Temperature Control of Hot Water– for commercial delivery systems
• Low Temp Hot Water as a means of reducing cost and CO2
“We can demonstrate how innovation can reduce the burden on fossil fuels whilst maximising renewable gains. We will look at the growing support for hydrogen-ready continuous flow hot water technologies and how this can benefit the industry versus traditional storage systems,” said Rinnai operations director Chris Goggin.
“We will analyse water heating design and specification discussing design issues and best practice for G3 and Legionella prevention. We can prove that continuous flow means value engineering that lasts a long working life,” he added.
