Stroma adds biomass to MCS scheme

Stroma Certification has secured approval from AKAS to extend the scope of its MCS accreditation scheme for installers to biomass.

The scheme already covers solar PV, GSHPs, ASHPs and solar thermal, and is expected to include wind turbines from the spring.

Andy Sharp, commercial manager, said: “We’re delighted to announce that we can now offer biomass as a new measure under our MCS scheme.

“The RHI is a big deal for the industry and its funding has given new impetus to customers. We want to put our members and other tradespeople in the best possible position to tap into this potential new business.”
