The Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC) is holding a series of heat pump training roadshows across Great Britain to help those involved in installing this technology in the homes of social tenants get to grips with the new standards for heat pump installation, MCS MIS 3005 Issue 3, which came into force in April 2012.


DECC has worked closely with the heat pump industry to develop these new standards and held roadshows to train heat pump installers in Autumn last year. DECC is now holding workshops specifically aimed at social housing providers, as this group represents a major potential market for this technology.

These free, one-day events are specifically designed for asset management, sustainability, housing and energy staff within social housing providers and for their heating. Training will be interactive, helping attendees to get to grips with the detail of specifications, the costs and benefits of heat pumps, maintenance, resident training, contracts and commissioning.

Event Schedule
The training roadshows will be held on:
Tuesday 16th October - Exeter
Wednesday 24th October - Swansea
Thursday 1st November - Glasgow
Thursday 8th November - Belfast
Wednesday 14th November - Manchester
Tuesday 20th November - London
Thursday 22nd November - Birmingham
Wednesday 28th November - Newcastle

LG Solar Unveils NeON R with Enhanced Aesthetics and Energy Savings

The NeON R module features "Back Contact" cell technology delivering an entirely black panel that is aesthetically pleasing and energy efficient. The cell's seamless, surface blends perfectly into nearly all rooftop designs while the module's electrodes are positioned on the rear of the cell. Using LG's N-type cell structure, the panels produce 365W of energy, up to 7.3kWp, compared to 5.8kWp of the p-type cell. The module's new design minimizes LID, thereby delivering a longer lifespan and increased energy output.
