Guide to microgeneration launched

NICEIC has announced the launch of its Microgeneration jargonbuster, providing explanation of the various subjects associated with this subject.

The organisation states that 2011 is set to be a key year for microgeneration and has therefore designed the guide to provide clear definitions of the key terms commonly used within the industry.

It can also be used by those considering installing renewable energy devices on their homes, says NICEIC.

“More than 100,000 homes in the UK currently have microgeneration installations,” said NICEIC’s chief operating officer Emma McCarthy.

“We expect this number to rise rapidly in 2011 as homeowners take advantage of the opportunity to produce their own ‘free’ energy.

“We predict that it won’t be long until private residential homeowners learn about the benefits of Feed-in-Tariffs and the incentives available.

“However, we also understand that to those not in the know, Microgeneration can seem a very complicated and confusing world – particularly with some of the scientific language involved.

“We hope this guide will go some way to giving people a clearer understanding of the industry and give them the confidence and courage to engage with professionals about microgeneration products and installations.”

The guide is available on the NICEIC websitet: www.niceic.com/householder/microgeneration
