Skills acquired on electrical courses may be needed for energy microgeneration

Electrical courses attendees may be needed in order to install microgeneration appliances, which one source has suggested are focused on the creation of electricity rather than export on to a wider grid.

Tobi Kellner, information officer at the Centre for Alternative Technology, noted the UK feed-in tariffs (Fits) are similar to the German equivalent, except Brits have a maximum capacity of five megawatts.

Technicians who have completed electrical courses are likely to be needed if consumers decide to have such equipment installed in their home.

However, due to the cap on the amount of power that can be produced on the UK scheme, Mr Kellner stressed the focus is on generation of electricity, as opposed to export.

"Commercial wind farms on and offshore, which will have to produce the bulk of renewable energy in the UK, are not covered by the UK Fits," he explained.

Recently Simon Taylor wrote in European Voice that Fits are widely seen as a viable method of increasing the amount of energy generated through sustainable means.
