If you install energy efficiency measures under any of the government supported initiatives such as the Green Homes Grant (GHG) or Energy Company Obligation (ECO), you must be certified to install the measures against the Publicly Available Specifications (PAS) standards 2030 by a certification body that has been accredited by UKAS.

If you install low-carbon heat measures such as heat pumps under government driven initiatives, you must be certified with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS).

We’re here to simplify the process to achieving these measures by guiding you through the steps you will need to take to meet the requirements for PAS 2030 and MCS certification. We will provide you with the necessary tools to help your business complete this process.
