The Solar Trade Association and the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council will be holding a joint launch event
The Solar Trade Association and the Heating and Hotwater Industry Council will be holding a joint launch event at the Restaurant Ship Hispaniola at 5pm on Wednesday 9th Sept for the Solar Thermal Benchmark Commissioning Checklist and STA Solar Handbook.
The launch event will feature a keynote speech by a principal political figure in the drive to reduce the UK’s carbon output. It will be attended by influential leaders from the renewable industry, keen to support these new initiatives.
Benchmark is the mark of quality for the commissioning and servicing of domestic heating and hot water systems. With the rapid growth in Solar thermal systems being installed, we believe that it is important to be setting standards on how these are commission and handed over to the end user. Therefore the HHIC in collaboration with the STA have produced the Solar Thermal Benchmark Commissioning Checklist. This will help to ensure that customers are provided with the correct equipment for their needs, that it is installed, commissioned and serviced in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions by competent persons and that it meets the requirements of the appropriate Building Regulations.
This will be published on an annual basis and provides an up-to-the-minute insight to current changes taking place within the solar industry and in particular, the Association members developments. This is the best time to be launching the Solar Handbook as with the introduction of the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), planned to be up and running by spring 2011.
A full directory of STA members is included; all of whom work with the high standards and Code of Ethical Practice of the Solar Trade Association.
