Interest in renewable energy courses could be stoked by FIT figures

Statistics covering the installation of micro-generation devices on the government's feed-in tariff (FIT) scheme could inspire more tradesmen to enrol in renewable energy courses.

Figures released by Ofgem show that from April to December 2010 an additional 57 MW was introduced to the grid, which demonstrates significant growth compared with the same period of 2009, during which time 44 MW of capacity was installed.

The report suggests the FIT initiative has been successful in encouraging more people to purchase micro-generation devices such as solar panels, which could prompt engineers to sign up for renewable energy courses.

Business Green suggested the results could fuel speculation that the government will reassess its green power strategy earlier than the previously proposed 2012 date.

The Department of Energy and Climate Change has stated that it will only bring forward the date of the FIT initiative's review if deployment is higher than expected.

Among the machines that qualify for the incentive are wind, solar photovoltaic, hydro and anaerobic digestion devices.
