Well suited to Halloween is the scary week we have had with regard to FiTs! Is it trick or treat for the Solar Sector?
I have looked closely at this and find that it certainly remains a treat! See the link below for 8 good reasons why you should satisfy yourself that the rumoured 55% reduction of the Feed in Tariff is not a ‘killer’. A bone-chilling reminder that energy costs will continue to rise is one of the good reasons why Solar is here to stay.
The thought of missing out on lucrative contracts can be pretty haunting!
I therefore explain how to be eligible for prequalification. Suppliers must demonstrate that they possess or have access to environmental capabilities to undertake work and deliver services for potential buyers. Take a look at the environmental questions you will be asked and get in touch if you need help.

This is why I am advising them to immediately start obtaining the skills and knowledge needed to deliver low carbon products. Construction SMEs will need accreditation under the Green Deal and may not survive in the new emerging low carbon markets without it.
If you love a thrill, Halloween is a perfect time to think outside the box!
The new ISO 50001 is not as spooky as you may think. Its purpose is to enable organisations to establish the systems and procedures necessary to improve energy performance including energy efficiency, energy use and consumption.
