Hands-on access to renewables, the Plumb Center way

Published:  25 November, 2010

LONDON: Plumb Center will be giving visitors hands-on access to the latest renewable technologies at the 2011 Practical Installer show at Ecobuild.

In the energy zone there will be live and interactive demonstrations of solar thermal and solar PV installations on a low-level roof structure.

There will also be a display wall, featuring solar rigs from the leading brands, including cylinders, pump stations, controls and mini panel, where visitors will be able to make like for like comparisons. Demonstrations on how to tackle the 'fill and flush' of a solar system are also promised.

Heat pumps will be under scrutiny with demonstrations of the installation, including connection to all the internal systems, and maintenance of airsource heat pumps and the opportunity to see a working groundsource heat loop display.
