NAPIT Microgeneration Certification Applications Rise

NAPIT Microgeneration Certification Scheme Applications on the Rise

NAPIT Certification has seen a significant increase in applications to its Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) throughout April, showing positive signs for the renewable energy industry.

The scheme operator predicts that the increased interest in MCS certification is, in part, down to the recent launch of the Domestic Renewable Heating Incentive (RHI), the Government’s most recent low-carbon energy financial incentive - this time encouraging homeowners to opt for a heat pump, biomass boiler or solar thermal heating technology.

Commenting on NAPIT’s rise in MCS applications, Managing Director of NAPIT Certification, David Cowburn said:

“It’s encouraging to see more tradespeople moving into the renewable energy market. Our recent results suggest that installers have growing faith in the Domestic RHI, we are hopeful that consumers will show similar levels of interest in this important incentive.”

To be eligible to install under the Domestic RHI, and other Government initiatives, start the application process for NAPIT Certification’s Microgeneration Certification Scheme by calling 0845 543 0330. For more information on NAPIT’s portfolio of membership schemes, visit
