Hat Trick of Awards for Calibrate Energy

Renewables business secures another highly prestigious accolade!


Calibrate Energy, located near Bamburgh, are thrilled to have scooped a third prestigious industry award for Installer of the Year at the National ACR & Heat Pump Awards, which recognises innovation in the renewables and Heat Pump sector.

This contributes to quite a line-up of awards now sitting on the office shelf and comes just a few weeks after receiving two further awards – one gold award for technical innovation at the Highland Show Awards and a second for best rural innovation at the Rural Business Awards regional finals.

These all recognised Calibrate’s success in installing commercial-scale ground source heat pumps (GSHP) to visionary businesses wanting to lower their carbon footprint and overhead costs for long term commercial and environmental sustainability.

One such project on the Borders provided a large-scale agricultural business with enough heat to dry 30,000 tonnes of grain through a massive 6.2MW GSHP, increasing productivity and thus profits, significantly.  To put the scale of this into perspective, the pump could heat a large part of a town the size of Alnwick!

Innovation features very highly in Calibrate’s vision and mission and they invest heavily in research and development to ensure that they remain at the forefront of their industry.  It is for this reason that the company is extremely proud to have received 3 awards in quick succession in this very area.  Gary Matthews, Managing Director for Calibrate commented:

“We were against some extremely big players in the industry, so it was a great pleasure to receive Installer of the Year at the ACR Awards, in partnership with Mitsubishi Electric, who supply all our heat pumps.  The evening was a true celebration and recognition of the future of the renewables heating industry as well an opportunity to address ways to achieve the 2050 carbon zero targets.

“In this time of sky-rocketing energy prices, as a progressive renewables provider, we are working with businesses to drive the carbon agenda forward through education and implementation of solutions that can really make a difference to bottom line performance and the environment.”

To date Calibrate have installed 300MW of heat pumps, over 100 Combined Heat & Power Systems, as well as prevented the release of tens of thousands of tonnes of carbon into the atmosphere.
