There are a number of eco and green home funding schemes that have been launched by the government in the past and more recently.
Current funding, such as the Green Homes Grant Scheme and Eco3 are in place as part of the government’s objective to make more than existing homes to become more energy efficient whilst also supporting more than 100,000 jobs.
In order for a homeowner to benefit under these schemes, the installer they use has to be certified to PAS 2030 or MSC (depending on the measure they are installing) and be registered with TrustMark. This protects the homeowner and ensures installations achieve what they are meant to – a more energy efficient home.
To gain PAS 2030 certification and to be able to become TrustMark registered, there is usually some work to do to get the installer organisation ready to gain certification.
As this can be a complex task, Eco Academy was launched in order to help installation companies get to a place quickly where they are ready for certification.
