Welcome to the MCS website

Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is an internationally recognised quality assurance scheme, supported by the Department of Energy and Climate Change. MCS certifies microgeneration technologies used to produce electricity and heat from renewable sources.

MCS is also an eligibility requirement for the Government's financial incentives, which include the Feed-in Tariff and the Renewable Heat Incentive. 

More information for those interested in buying and installing microgeneration products is available in the consumer area of this website, while companies who want to become MCS certified should visit the installer and manufacturer area of this website.
