The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) For Installing Renewable Energy Systems.

The Standard Assessment Procedure (SAP) for energy rating is used to help predict the amount of electricity expected to be generated from a typical 2.kW solar PV panel system installed on the roof of a standard, domestic UK household, and includes seasonal variations for fluctuating temperatures throughout the year.All Microgeneration Certificate Scheme (MCS) accredited photovoltaic systems installers are expected to use this system to obtain a range of monthly generation data, to include cloud cover, and using the ideal roof pitch of 38 degrees. Originally developed as a tool to help deliver energy efficiency policies, SAP provides a framework for calculating the energy consumption of domestic dwellings and is included in Part L of the Building Regulations for England and Wales.Two of the key renewable energy courses taught at AbleSkills Renewable Energy Centre are solar PV courses and solar courses, which provide comprehensive theory and practical learning units up to level 2 and 3 training, verified by accredited and experienced industry professional staff tutors. All the required learning curriculums and hands-on skillsets are approved by key national examining bodies, City & Guilds, BPEC and NICEIC. Candidates who follow and complete their courses to obtain the mandatory qualifications can go on to undertake vital MCS assessment procedures as part of the important work of PV solar panel installation.The SAP assessment calculates the energy balance based on a range of factors that contribute to energy efficiency, which include, construction materials, thermal insulation, ventilation systems, heating system(s) efficiency and control, space / water heating / ventilation / lighting fuel, renewable energy technologies.For those currently interested in or about to undertake working in the 'renewables' installation industry, enrollment on a short AbleSkills renewable energy awareness course is
