Electrical courses could benefit low-carbon push

Electrical training courses could assist the government in trying to make the UK more environmentally-friendly.

As of today (April 1st), two new schemes have been introduced to try and cut down on Britain's carbon emissions - the Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC EES) and Feed in Tariffs (FiTs).

The CRC EES aims to help businesses become more energy efficient by encouraging them to make eco-friendly upgrades to their properties, while the FiTs will offer grants to homeowners who install low-carbon electricity generation technology.

Ed Miliband, secretary of state for energy and climate change, said: "The UK is leading the way in tackling climate change. Organisations and householders can play a central role in leading the move to a low carbon economy whilst saving money on their energy bills."

And workers who have taken electrical or plumbing courses could be in demand to install such energy-saving technology for homeowners and businesses.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change - which was formed in October 2008 - announced the initiatives.
