MCS to showcase the Future Installer at Futurebuild 2022

MCS is once again partnering with Futurebuild as the leading industry event returns on 1 – 3 March 2022 at ExCeL London.

Futurebuild enables MCS and other members of the renewables industry to give installers access to the latest technologies and insight needed to decarbonise the UK’s homes.

As the leading standards organisation for the UK domestic renewables sector, MCS will be the heart of the event’s Future Installer area on stand A50.

This section is dedicated to the latest innovations, enabling visitors to interact with renewable technologies, meet leading manufacturers and installers, and gain invaluable insights from industry leaders.

The MCS team will be on hand to discuss the challenges of decarbonising heat, including how we need to upskill, retrain, and encourage a new generation of renewable installers to join the ever-growing industry.

Future Installers: MCS stand partners

Joining MCS on stand A50 will be installers and manufacturers of MCS certified products to highlight the benefits of renewable energy technologies and showcase how they work.

Heating experts from Thermal Earth, Groundtherm and Matrix Energy Systems will be available to demonstrate working heat pumps and showcase the technology.

Meanwhile, AceOn and Viridian will exhibit the latest in solar PV and battery storage technologies.

Biomass experts, Firepower, will also be joining MCS for the first time, to explain how even off-grid housing can still be sustainable with the use of a biomass boiler.

MCS will also be joined by long-term partner Solar Energy UK (SEUK), which offers affiliate membership to MCS certified installers. SEUK helps to provide those in the solar industry with valuable insights to expand and thrive.


Industry-leading insights and networking

MCS will be hosting panels, talks and on-stand events throughout the week.

On day one (1 March), Ian Rippin, CEO of MCS, is leading an expert industry panel: Will the government’s heating of domestic buildings strategies transform how we heat our homes?

He will be joined by Ian Mather, business development manager, British Gas; Chris Galpin, energy policy advisor, BEIS; Ian Cuthbert, senior policy advisor, Scottish Government; and Laura Bishop, chair of the Ground Source Heat Pump Association.

In addition to this, MCS will be hosting a drinks reception on-stand to bring together the industry and share information on plans for a new low carbon heat technician apprenticeship.

Plus, with more talks in the pipeline, keep an eye out for further announcements in upcoming weeks.

Ian Rippin, CEO of MCS, said: “It’s great to welcome back Futurebuild after a year away. The stakes are higher than ever, with events such as COP26 bringing green energy to the fore. Installers and consumers want to see a lasting shift to home-grown energy. Futurebuild is the ideal platform to demonstrate the innovation in the sector and enact real change.

“MCS is ready to meet the decarbonisation challenge head on by facilitating training for installers and providing guidance to consumers. Join us on-stand to find out what we’re doing to help secure a net-zero future.”
