Electrical training goes green !

NICEIC - the electrical contracting industry's independent voluntary body for electrical installation matters throughout the UK - reports that the electricians of tomorrow will have to embrace and install new technologies and products which will help protect the environment.

If Government targets are to be met, then clean energy sources will have to be offered for installation in the home.

The days of abundant quantities of North Sea gas are coming to an end and coal burning power stations producing electricity are seen as environmentally damaging. Issues such as global warming and climate change are now dominating politics and social awareness has increased as the dangers and damage to our planet become apparent. Conserving energy must be the primary focus and in the medium to long term this will be followed by the production in the UK of energy from renewable sources by 2020.

Although the majority of renewable technologies can be installed on most properties within the UK, not every one will be suitable for each property design. Viability is therefore, measured by the complete installation cost versus the finanacial saving it will provide annually.

At AbleSkills, training for 'green' energy assessment and installation is considerably advanced with a number of different courses available, including Solar Photovoltaic systems training, available to qualification level.
