The much awaited specification for installation process, process management and service provision has today been launched. If you want to install under the Green Deal and ECO, this is very important information .
The PAS (Publicly Available Specification) 2030 contains the specific skills, qualifications and other requirements that installers need in order to undertake Green Deal work from October 2012.
The PAS 2030 is a robust specification for the installation of a range of approved energy efficiency measures for existing buildings. It contains the installation processes required per entity, for each measure, management of the installation, and quality of service provided to the customer before, during, and after the installation.
PAS 2030 is a quality standard whereby installers must demonstrate they are capable of providing the installations to exact specifications to ensure quality workmanship for the customer.
The PAS 2030 has been produced to work alongside the Green Deal financing mechanism, but its scope is much wider and includes any work undertaken under the Energy Company Obligation. The Green Deal is based on the principle that some eco-retrofits to properties will pay for themselves through the savings made on energy bills.
The Energy Act 2011 presented the Green Deal scheme late 2011 as a financing mechanism to allow a range of energy efficiency measures to be installed in both domestic and non-domestic properties at no upfront cost.
The Green Deal Manager for PAS 2030 Accreditation
We will soon be launching the Green Deal Manager which simplifies the stages within the PAS 2030 into manageable segments. It is an on-line tool which leads to certification and accreditation. Both the PAS 2030 and all the required British Standards will be available as part of the Green Deal Manager in a One Stop Shop.
