The MCS administrator has today reinstated two solar assisted heat pumps (SAHP) manufactured by Energy Panel S.L.

The products were removed from the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) approved list in February as the methodologies employed to certify the products were not compliant with the requirements of "MCS 007 Product Certification Scheme Requirements: Heat Pumps".

After several weeks of testing at SZU, an accredited UKAS/ independent third party testing laboratory, the Thermboil TB 200-E and Thermboil TB 300-E Litres have now regained approval.

The Thermboil products offer savings of up to 80% on domestic hot water, 365 days a year, day and night under all weather conditions, says the company.

“We have high expectations that our compact thermodynamic solar systems for domestic hot water approved now by MCS will completely change the renewable energy market place for both businesses that sell renewable energy, installers and reseller,” said a company spokesperson. “We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your patience and confidence in our products.”

Energy Panel is working closely with SZU and MCS in order to extend the range of products approved.
