The Drive To Deliver UK Renewable Energy Sources

Here at AbleSkills Renewable Energy Centre, it's always systems go! Another hectic week begins as the next new set of students arrive to begin their training, hopefully, already fired up by the thought of working with the new technologies!In today's challenging economy, a great opportunity is for the taking to be hands-on while learning all the knowledge essentials taught on the key City & Guilds/BPEC/NICEIC curriculums, such as solar PV courses, solar courses, heat pump courses, biomass courses, underfloor heating courses and rainwater harvesting courses.It's becoming more noticeable that today's electrician and plumbing students are showing a keener interest in renewable energy courses as they recognise that their training and qualifications are going to be vital to getting on board the renewables industry drive to deliver UK renewable energy sources in the coming decades. Taking the renewable energy awareness course provides a valuable insight and first guiding step for many candidates, whether coming to the industry for the first time or experienced tradesmen who wish to expand their service skills to install the new types of energy systems.According to the latest report just published by the Committee on Climate Change (CCC), the UK should be able to deliver at least 30 per cent of its energy from renewable sources by 2030 to fulfill their obligation to CO2 emission reduction. The document goes on to say that the figure could be as high as 45 per cent "... depending on the extent to which renewable technology costs fall and possible limits on the use of low-carbon alternatives".The report went on to imply that a rapid acceleration in the rollout of the UK's renewable energy capacity would see emission reduction targets met by 15 per cent from renewable sources by 2020, which double again by 2030. A combination of renewable energy technologies, which included air and ground source heat pumps, and the use of biomass for heat generation are seen as essential to help achieve the projected target.A recommendation was also made for the government to improve support for the renewables sector and deliver new commitments on funding for renewable heat investment between 2015 and 2020. Importantly, the report stated that
