Heat Pump training roadshows for social housing providers

Following a series of nine successful roadshows across the UK, the Department of Energy and Climate Change announces two new roadshow dates.
The roadshows are designed to help social housing providers get to grips with issues around procurement, installation, commissioning and management of heat pumps, in line 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 2011. 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 contractors. Training will be interactive, helping attendees to explore the detail of specifications, the costs and benefits of heat pumps, maintenance, resident training, contracts and commissioning.
The new roadshows will be held on:

  • Tuesday 8th January 2013, Southampton
  • Thursday 10th January 2013, London
