Rural energy provider Calor is offering installers a training course on the benefits of its BioLPG fuel for homes based off the mains gas grid.

The fuel, available exclusively from Calor, has been identified in the government’s UK Clean Growth Strategy as one that can play a key role in contributing to the rural energy transition.

Calor says that BioLPG is ideal for customers seeking a greener and more sustainable fuel, and the course covers what BioLPG is and the difference it can make to a property’s carbon emissions. Attendees can learn about the opportunities available to help homeowners living off the mains gas grid cut their carbon emissions significantly. This includes help and guidance on how to specify BioLPG.

Karl Bateman, National Specifier Manager at Calor, explains: “Both LPG and now BioLPG can make a really positive contribution to the UK’s decarbonisations plans. Historically, oil heating has been one of the most common forms of rural heating. However, its carbon footprint is much higher than alternative energy sources such as LPG. With BioLPG now available too, installers are able to recommend much more environmentally-friendly alternatives for residential heating applications.

“LPG and BioLPG are highly efficient fuels, so homeowners get a good return on every unit of energy. In fact, modern condensing LPG boilers, which use hot flue gases that are wasted in a standard boiler, now achieve efficiencies of up to 90%. For installers working on newbuild properties, BioLPG offers a sustainable and long-lasting solution.”

The course is suitable for groups of 5-10 installers, and Calor can either host the event at a company’s premises, or if there is a high enough demand for training in a particular area, Calor will find a suitable venue that is convenient for all delegates.
