MCS Announces Sponsorship of STA Solar Roadshow

MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme), a national Certification Scheme has announced sponsorship of the Rooftop Solar Roadshow which will travel the country this May.

Organised by The Solar Trade Association, the Rooftop Solar Roadshow will tour the UK with stops in four major cities to deliver insightful, industry-focused half-day seminars. The Roadshow aims to unite solar installers, helping to develop the knowledge and expertise needed to master the new post-subsidy solar landscape in the UK.

MCS is a nationally recognised quality assurance scheme, supported by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS). It provides the framework for the certification of microgeneration technologies used to produce electricity and heat from low carbon sources.

The Roadshows have been organised to support and empower solar installers following the impending permanent closure of the FiT scheme at the end of March. With stops in Bristol, Edinburgh, Manchester and Peterborough, these seminars will feature policy briefings from STA experts, panel discussions with local council representatives, and a workshop with award-winning sales leadership consultant, Mark Wormald.

Ian Rippin, Chief Executive of MCS said, “The closure of the FiT is predicted to significantly impact the residential retrofit sector, but the long-term market opportunity of domestic solar should not be overlooked. Public support for solar is exceptionally high and 96% of homes in the UK are yet to install panels on their roofs. We want to support solar installers in capturing these opportunities and this Roadshow is a great way to access and build networks and knowledge.”

The Solar Roadshow will help solar installers to unlock new technologies and markets, learn how to recalibrate marketing strategies, gain an understanding of emerging regulations and standards with STA policy experts and access valuable market intelligence on deployment trends.

The Solar Roadshow will run from 1st – 9th May, discounted tickets are available for current STA Members although non-members are also welcome to attend.
