Success for Future Installer 2020

Several partners successfully joined forces with MCS at Futurebuild, ExCeL London on 3rd – 5th March with an interactive display including a working Ground Source Heat Pump, solar panels, battery storage and an Air Source Heat Pump. They showcased how the full spectrum of renewable energy products and services rolled out by qualified, competent Installers, will contribute to a rapid transition to smarter, lower carbon homes and communities; to prepare for a future with home-grown energy.

Ian Rippin, CEO of MCS said, “Educating and helping to inspire installers is critical and we want to drive awareness that the role of the installer must change if we are to respond to the climate emergency. The UK’s decarbonisation agenda will bring enormous changes to the way we heat buildings and achieving high quality outcomes will be essential as we embrace the challenge of achieving net zero. We made a solid declaration at this event that this, is the Year of the Heat Pump!

We were grateful for the support of our partners, which also included some MCS certified Installers demonstrating their craft.”

Gemma from the STA commented, “It was fantastic for the STA to be at Futurebuild with the MCS Future Installer stand. The future of buildings will be integrated so sharing the space with our colleagues installing solar, heat pumps and storage technologies highlighted the importance of cross-sector collaboration as well as the industry’s commitment to standards”

The collaborative showcase included contributions from key partners; the Solar Trade Association, RECC, AceOn, Groundtherm, Ground Source Heat Pump Association, Solarsense, Thermal Earth, MasterTherm, Matrix Energy Systems, Viessmann and OFTEC.
