How Do I Become An Eco Scheme Installer

September 27, 2023


Many clients want help and advice regarding gaining the training and qualifications recommended by the Eco Scheme installer accreditation PAS 2030.

What is PAS 2030?

The government and the larger energy providers are working towards an objective to ensure all existing properties are energy efficient by 2030. Contracts and funding schemes around the retrofit of energy efficiency measures in buildings are starting to stipulate that installers need to work for PAS 2030 certification.

To achieve this, you need to be certified by a Green Deal accredited certification body as meeting the PAS 2030 standard for the measures you wish to install and abide by the conditions in the Green Deal code of Practice.

What does PAS 2030 cover?

PAS 2030 Certification – Retrofit installation of EEM – Energy Efficiency Installer

Certification for retrofit of dwellings for improved energy efficiency

Assessment, design, and installation within commercial building stock of EEMS

Along with PAS 2035 and PAS 2039, PAS 2030 is the best practice in energy efficiency installation for existing building stock. Installing this standard gives your customers the trust and confidence that the work is to a high standard.
