Train4TradeSkills News: Renewable Energy use hits all-time high
The amount of renewable energy projects has hit an all-time high and is contributing more than ever before to the UK’s electricity supply.
New statistics from the Department of Energy and Climate Change have revealed that green energy has seen a 50% rise in the last year.
Wind energy has seen the biggest rise, increasing by 120% in the last year due to the rise in the number of offshore wind farms and biomass power plants.
This was followed by hydroelectricity, which grew by 75% and then nuclear energy, which grew by 38%.
This all means that renewable electricity makes up 9.6% of the UK’s grid mix, the highest it has ever been.
It all means that plumbers and electricians who want to take advantage of the popularity of renewable energy and work on renewable, and solar projects, need to be properly qualified.
That’s why Plumbers’ merchant Plumb Center have urged plumbers to get their MCS (Mircrogeneration Certification Scheme) accreditation if they want to work on renewable projects and solar panels.
We have also launched a brand new renewable energy course, so you can get MCS-accredited and train to be a renewable energy installer.
