Oxford Solarheat

The MCS certificates microgeneration technologies used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources. The UK is committed to delivering its share of the EU target for 20% of energy from renewable sources by 2020. Achieving our targets could provide Ј100 billion worth of investment opportunities and up to half a million jobs in the renewable energy sector by 2020. 50% of all our energy is used for heating and hot water and 75% of domestic households' energy consumption is for heating and hot water.

The UK's renewable energy strategy aims for 12% of heat to come from renewable sources. Currently under 5% of UK electricity comes from renewable sources. It is estimated that 30% of our electricity may be delivered from renewables with 2% from small-scale electricity generation. How does the MCS affect installers? The MCS is an internationally recognised quality assurance scheme which demonstrates to your customers that your company is committed to meeting rigorous and tested standards.
