Under the terms of the non-exclusive agreement with Ceramic Fuel Cells, RES On-Site – part of the RES Group – will distribute BlueGen, targeting the commercial microgeneration energy market throughout the UK.
RES On-Site holds Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) installer accreditations in a range of technologies. It is adding micro CHP accreditation, and will provide installation and after-sales service for BlueGen products. It will also support Ceramic Fuel Cells in developing the market for BlueGen in the UK.
RES On-Site sells and installs a range of low-emission power and heating products for commercial, industrial, and public sector customers, including wind, biomass, solar photovoltaic, and solar hot water.
‘The UK government’s tariff structures supporting the deployment of exciting new products such as BlueGen makes the UK a hugely dynamic developing market for renewable technologies,’ says Mike Atkinson, Managing Director of RES On-Site Ltd.
BlueGen was recently chosen to participate in the low-carbon smart grid project led by CE Electric UK. This £54 million (US$87 million) initiative – one of four announced last fall – will explore how a combination of smart technologies and changes in customer behavior can reduce costs associated with low-carbon technologies.
