UK: Panasonic has become a sector associate of the Scottish Federation of Housing Associations (SFHA) to assist the region in achieving its challenging targets of lowering carbon emissions.
SFHA sector associates are organisations who promote their products and services to the housing sector and support the SFHA through promotional platforms such as sponsorship, exhibiting and advertising.
Panasonic becomes one of over 200 sector associates, and will share with the association its R&D knowledge and experience of low carbon heating solutions through training, seminars, webinars, spec design and support services.
“Panasonic as a company is hugely passionate about the environment and I believe we can help the region meet its low carbon targets through supporting and advising the social housing providers and developers in the region,” said Panasonic’s Scottish regional manager Darren Reis.
“With heat pumps hitting the media headlines and following on from COP26, we have recently a seen a huge increase in demand from both homeowners and installers for more information and hands-on training centres,” he said. “We are meeting this challenge by opening a new dedicated training centre for installers in November 2021 in Livingstone, plus there is a mobile training unit to ensure the more remote parts of the region are covered.”
In addition, Panasonic is providing further online virtual training, advice and support by offering a remote service via its Smart Cloud and Service Cloud app.
Panasonic is currently working with several social housing providers across the region, including West Highland Housing Association in Oban where around 80 Panasonic air source heat pumps have already been installed this year with a further 60 being installed over the next six months.
