Still a way to go with Smart Meter targets

The clock is ticking away on the smart meter roll-out and there's still a lot of work to be done if energy suppliers are to meet government targets.

All homes and small business sites will be offered smart meters by their energy company between now and the end of 2020.  


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.


DECC scrapped, what effect will it have on the renewables industry?

New Prime Minister, Theresa May, has scrapped the Department of Energy and Climate Change as part of a major cabinet reshuffle.

It was announced on Thursday that energy policy will now be decided by the newly-created Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, headed up by Greg Clark – Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy.  The new department will be responsible for delivering industrial strategy, business relations, furthering the UK’s science base, delivering affordable, clean energy and tackling climate change.


Logic Certification helps new academy get smart!

Logic Certification has joined forces with the UK’s leading provider of metering services, CH4 Services, helping the firm to become fully accredited to deliver its QCF Level 2 Diploma in Smart Metering Power.

 

The qualification was launched in response to an industry need to meet the demand for the installation of 50 million smart gas and electricity meters in 27 million homes by 2020. The launch of the smart metering academy now means that CH4 Services is able to directly address the gap within the sector for trained smart meter operatives, both increasing their existing workforce’s opportunities and opening up potential for new entrants.


New electrical qualifications to open new doors!

Are you an electrician and looking to add to your skill set? Are you a building services engineer who needs electrical knowledge? Could you make it as a smart meter installer? Logic Certification has added a number of new electrical qualifications to its portfolio giving learners more choice and flexible, learning routes.


Government u-turn on zero carbon homes policy

It is feared that up to two million extra tonnes of CO2 could be created each year following the government’s dramatic u-turn on its zero carbon targets for new homes. Chancellor George Osbourne revealed that his zero carbon building policy is to be scrapped, which means two policies have been axed: an upgrade to the 2016 Building Regulations and the ‘Allowable Solutions’ carbon offsetting scheme.


Leading the smart meter revolution

With power and gas suppliers preparing to roll out Smart Meters, ensuring the government’s 2020 targets are met, Utilities Academy, one of the UK’s leading providers of Smart Meter training, has become the first centre approved by Logic Certification to deliver its new dual fuel Smart Meter Diploma. The course covers both gas and electricity, plus the vitally important customer-facing skills that will help end users understand this new technology and change their energy usage to reduce consumption. 


A smart move to smart meters!

So, the age of the smart meter is here! With the country mid-way through the roll-out, it can only be a positive thing that, for the first time, consumers can see exactly how much energy they are using, resulting in them making better choices and, ultimately, saving money. Bills will be more accurate and there will be no more unwelcome knocks on the door to read your meter as the unit itself will transmit regular and exact readings automatically.
