Championing Wales: A Housing Industry Leaders Podcast Special
3rd August 2023
The latest data from MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme) shows that Wales is leading the UK in terms of uptake of small-scale renewable energy installations per household. Last week, our CEO, Ian Rippin, shared this exciting news with Housing Industry Leaders Podcast in a special feature.
Scotland has nearly double the number of households as Wales and has previously dominated the UK in terms of installation uptake. However, in the last few months, Wales overtook Scotland for the first time since 2021, with 7.4% of households having some form of renewable energy installation. Even more impressive, according the MCS Data Dashboard, Wales has now, this month, surpassed 100,000 total installations!
In the podcast Ian discusses the popularity of solar PV, the challenges across the sector and what lessons the rest of the UK can learn from the incredible work that Wales is doing.
