Greater Manchester-based sustainable power business Ener-G has joined forces with Italian manufacturer Robur to supply low-carbon gas absorption heat pumps to UK consumers

The technology works by removing energy from a low-temperature heat source – outside air – and upgrading it in the heat pump so it can be used to heat or cool air or water inside a building. The process is powered by natural gas or LPG.

Benefits include security of energy supply through reduced dependency on electricity, low maintenance levels and heating and cooling by a single unit.
