Round up of The Each Home Counts Bonfield Review

The long-awaited Each Home Counts - Bonfield Review was published in December 2016, an independent report which looks at how to improve energy efficiency, and encourage uptake of renewables in the UK.


BEIS publishes RHI consultation response

The government has published its long-awaited response to the recent consultation on the future of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) which offers financial support and incentives for low-carbon heating technologies in domestic UK properties.

Several major changes were proposed by the consultation, with the scheme due for reform in April 2017.  


RHI hits 25,000 mark as home owners vote for green!

New statistics from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) show that the UK’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) is now helping to warm 25,000 homes, as consumers wake-up to the benefits of installing renewable technologies, such as heat pumps, solar thermal, solar pv and biomass systems.


Good news for the RHI!

New statistics from the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) show that domestic RHI installations have smashed the 20,000 milestone, with some 6,244 new accreditations since April 2014 when the initiative was officially launched.


New pellet only biomass course

Logic Certification has launched a new biomass heating course, to help installers take advantage of the increased market demand in-light of the Domestic RHI and the general start of the heating season. Focusing on pellet-burning appliances, the new, limited-scope qualification will allow heating and plumbing engineers who don’t deal with logs or chips to choose a course most relevant to their business needs.


New energy efficiency qualification

Logic Certification has published a new QCF qualification - Level 3 Award in Energy Efficiency for Gas Fired and Oil Fired Domestic Heating and Hot Water Systems.

The course is designed to enable installers of oil and gas fired boilers comply with the requirements of the Building Regulations Approved Document L1A and the Domestic Building Services Compliance Guide.

 


Train for the domestic RHI through Logic Certification

The domestic RHI has now been launched after what might seem like an eternity. This is an exciting turn of events for the building services engineering sector and one which should provide an incentive for installers to train in associated technologies.

 

Logic Certification courses in solar thermal hot water and heat pumps (both ground and air source) are some of the only qualifications approved to meet the requirements of MCS. Available at locations throughout the UK, is likely there's a Logic Certification approved centre not far from your business.


RHI Training Vouchers launched!

The Renewable Heat  Incentive Training Support Scheme (RHITSS) has now gone live, meaning installers can apply for vouchers online at www.rhitraining.co.uk and redeem them at approved centres. If you're a Logic Certification centre and you haven't yet applied to become an approved centre, do so now at www.rhitraining.co.uk.


RHI training voucher scheme launched, train through Logic Certification

Yesterday (24th October) saw Logic Certification play host to Energy Secretary, Ed Davey  and the launch of a new £500,000 training voucher scheme in a bid to raise the skills set of existing plumbing and heating engineers, equipping them with the expertise needed to install and maintain renewable heating or hot water systems.
