LEBANON, Tenn. (April 16, 2018) – Lochinvar, the industry-leading high-efficiency boiler and water heater manufacturer, and EC POWER, the top European producer of residential and commercial combined heat and power plants, today announced a strategic partnership to launch a cutting-edge cogeneration product in North America.
“Cogeneration is a game changer for the North American market as commercial facilities, such as in-patient care, universities, hotels, and multi-family complexes, have an increasing desire for products that provide reliable hot water and reduced energy costs,” said Mike Lahti, vice president of sales, marketing and business development. “Lochinvar’s partnership with EC POWER to expand the availability of cogeneration technology will reduce operating costs for businesses while also remaining true to both our companies’ long-standing history of groundbreaking innovation, superior engineering and quality.”
This partnership is designed to meet the growing need for reliable, alternative energy in North America. Cogeneration products decrease a facility’s environmental impact and electricity expenses by using a single heat source for domestic hot water and power generation.
“Cogeneration is a huge step in sustainability and energy efficiency. The concept has proven to be incredibly successful in the European market and it continues to grow in popularity,” said Christian Neve, chief sales officer for EC POWER. “Lochinvar has been leading the North American industry for more than 70 years, so their level of expertise was the perfect match for this project as we work together to create new opportunities for enhanced efficiency.” The product is slated for an official launch in January 2019.
