Training Voucher Scheme Launched To Help Industry Install Renewable Heating Systems

A £500,000 fund aimed at raising the skill set of domestic heating engineers so they can install and maintain renewable heating systems has been set up by Energy Secretary Edward Davey.

The voucher scheme will be backed up by an apprenticeship initiative that will encourage people coming into the industry to develop the necessary expertise to work on these systems and gain relevant qualification credits. Based on the results of this initiative, the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) will look to increase funding and support for the supply chain.

Giving consumers and installers reliable information is an important part of helping them make decisions about their heating system. The Energy Savings Trust is also publishing today guides for consumers covering a range of low carbon heat technologies. (Source: DECC Press Release)
