Scheme could boost jobs for those with approved electrical qualifications

Tradespersons who have taken electrical, plumbing or green energy training courses could find that their job prospects are boosted as a result of a new Ofgem scheme.

In an announcement made by the body yesterday (February 9th), it said that it is launching the new green energy certification scheme, which is aimed at reducing carbon emissions in energy generation.

Electricity suppliers will be invited to come up with - and demonstrate before a panel - a tariff that produces carbon emission levels lower than a given minimum threshold.

Successful companies will be awarded with a Green Energy Certified Label.

Commenting on the scheme, Claire Gibson, senior press officer for the Energy Retail Association, said: "What the scheme does do is allow suppliers to innovate and produce different kinds of tariff and innovation is always a great driver of competition."

It could be that workers with approved electrical qualifications are needed to install new technology or equipment that may come with new energy tariffs.
