The European Energy Centre has partnered with Business Edge Ltd to launch a series of courses in Scotland and England
The courses, initially Edinburgh and Portsmouth, will bring professionals up to speed on the latest advances in energy efficient refrigeration, air conditioning, heat pumps and renewable energy.
The courses cover the UK-based Renewable Heat Incentive affecting those working in the renewable energy industries.
Due to the RHI, interest in renewable energy has led to an increase in demand from installers wanting to increase their understanding of refrigeration, air conditioning or renewable energies.
For the first time, under the RHI, owners of commercial heat pumps will get paid for the heat they produce and homeowners may be eligible for a grant towards the installation of their heat pump.
Business Edge Training Director Kelvin Kelly said: “Business Edge and The EEC offer a high level of professional training.”
“With the adoption of F Gas Regulation 842, installers must have gained certification before working on refrigeration, air conditioning and heat pump systems.”
“Successful delegates will have gained valuable knowledge to ensure energy efficiency for air conditioning, refrigeration and heat pump systems.”
Business Edge added that the RHI is there to encourage commercial and domestic energy users to generate heat from renewable sources.
The courses will help people to take advantage of the world’s first tariff scheme for owners of renewable heating equipment and help people invest wisely in renewable energy.
EEC Director Paolo Buoni said: “I am extremely glad we are launching this new joint venture, which adds to our group of high-calibre associate organisations such as the United Nations Environment Programme and the European Commission.”
“We can now look forward to providing even more professionals with cutting-edge information from top level trainers based on the experience of two major educational organisations in Europe.”
