Dave Shaw, of South Coast Solar, won first prize in the Greenstar oil-fired boiler installation category at the 12th annual Environment 2020 Awards, hosted by Worcester, Bosch Group.

His project, installing an energy-efficient Greenstar 25/32 oil-fired system boiler alongside a Greenskies solar thermal system on a beachfront bungalow in Downderry, Cornwall, won praise from the judges for its replacement of a 25- year old Worcester oil-fired boiler with a new condensing model.

Martyn Bridges, director of marketing and technical support, said: “As a manufacturer of both award-winning high-efficiency condensing boilers and renewable technologies, our aim is to help installers and specifiers reduce carbon emissions wherever they can.”
