Renewables on tour

This September, the Renewables Roadshow, powered by Plumb Center kicks off in Bolton. A series of events is lined up across the country throughout that month.

Visitors to the event will have the opportunity to interact with dozens of exhibiting manufacturers, merchants and professional bodies and there will be four theatres designed to simplify technologies and training.

“We want to make renewable energy technology as accessible as possible, dispelling the myths and clearly demonstrating the benefits. The Renewables Roadshow will give installers and contractors the chance to see it in action and to learn how it can give them a significant business advantage over their competitors,” said Simon Allan, renewables director, Plumb Center.

The events have received support from across the sector. Chris Davies, business development director, Dimplex Renewables, said: “The renewable heating and solar marketplaces are among the most exciting in the HVAC industry.  The opportunities for installers with the right training and expertise are immense.”

Likewise, Graham Parkes, head of sales, low carbon, Baxi added: “’We see the Renewables Roadshow as a great way of helping to dispel the myths around low carbon technologies. We need to help installers to understand which technologies would be the best match for their business, then help them through the training and qualifications process so they are in a position to offer a really professional, accredited installation service.”

Adrian Troop, sales & marketing director, Nu-Heat, commented:  “The renewables market is on an upward curve, and with the Renewable Heat Incentive confirmed it’s the ideal time to get involved and make sure you’re up to date with all the latest developments.”
