We are pleased to announce that following our application in April for Energy Systems Catapult’s (ESC) Innovator Challenge: Smart Heating and Cooling, Logicor has been invited to sign up to its Innovator Support Platform. We were accepted after a two-day workshop and ESC’s subsequent due diligence process.
Our Managing Director, David Bowen has said "We are very pleased to have been recognised and accepted on Energy System Catapult’s Innovation Support Platform."
“We would like to thank the Catapult team for considering our Clear Heating System for this programme and look forward to working with the team to help support and develop ideas in assisting the acceleration of our system to market."
“As a research and development company, it is great to receive recognition for the progress and developments we have made with our heating system and have the Catapult championing our cause in helping people to reduce energy consumption which in turns helps the environment and helps reduce carbon emissions.”

What's new at Logicor
company news and product updates
We are pleased to announce that Logicor has been awarded the National Framework Agreement for Smart Heating Systems. The framework was awarded to us by The Countess of Chester NHS Foundation Trust Commercial Procurement Services and we are the sole supplier under this framework.
The framework offers a fully compliant route for all NHS departments and public sector bodies (social housing landlords, local authorities and government departments) free access to the service. This will now save them the time and money developing, tendering and evaluating bids for the systems.
This framework is designed to offer our highly efficient Clear Heater System to all members. The benefits of this framework include:
The system is easy to install with minimal distribution and is scalable across multiple buildings and sites.
If you would like more information about the fully OJEU compliant framework, please visit the Countess of Chester website at https://www.coch-cps.co.uk/our-services/our-frameworks/ (contract F056).

Logicor are working on a new product to compliment our existing portfolio of energy saving products.
The new Logicor Energy Meter or LEM for short will begin live trails from the end of July through to September and is due for release before December 2016.
The purpose of the LEM is to read and report back accurately the total energy usage for a single property right down to a resolution of a single Watt second. This will help to build an energy use picture to guide customers in ways to save money and energy.
The LEM has a high degree of learning capability built into it and will allow each connected LEM talk to other LEM’s on it's own network and identify individual devices in a home. For example it will be able to identify that the iron is still switched on or that the tumble drier is on. The resolution is so small that it will be able to identify a phone charger or a TV in standby.
We think it’s a worthy addition to our portfolio of products and dove tails in perfectly with the company’s push in the direction of energy saving solution, in particular the CHS and ILHWS.
How do Clear Heaters use so little energy?
We are excited to announce the release of our latest product: the InLine Hot Water System!
This will complement the Clear Heater System in your home or office by providing efficient hot water on demand, and just like the Clear Heater System you'll have full control of how much you spend on hot water on a daily or monthly basis via the smart Control Panel.
The new system replaces both the traditional boiler and the storage tank in your home removing the need for gas in your home altogether when combined with the Clear Heater System.
We've put together a fact sheet below to give you a sneak preview of how it works and what to expect....
A recent report by Dr John Paul Gosling of Leeds University compared estimated heat loss with recorded energy usage for properties using the Logicor Clear Heater System.
Overall, the results show the Logicor Clear Heating System in a good light.
Properties with this heating system can expect a % difference of 80 to 90% from the estimated heat loss and they should be very surprised if the % difference they observed was less than 30%.

Whilst our installation programme gathers more pace it has become apparent that there is a higher than predicted level of homes in the UK not equipped with Wi-Fi access to the internet.
Customers without Wi-fi are not benefiting from some of the higher end functionality of the Clear Heater system.
To resolve this we have brought forward the launch of our 3G version of the Control Panel, which will be available during the first half of 2014.
In the meantime we will continue to assist customers where we can.
Having an existing relationship with South African manufacturers we have been receiving a higher than expected number of enquiries from other countries within the African continent. The majority of those enquires have come from construction companies wanting to incorporate our Logicor Green Wall Sockets into their current and future building projects.
Ever since the 2011 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP17) hosted in South Africa there has been increasing interest from African companies in the area of energy saving technology. Marketing directly to those companies and the African construction industry is seen to be a great way to introduce our products to what we believe to be an emerging market.
