OFTEC has announced that it will be showcasing its new scopes of registration at the Heating and Renewables Roadshow – the UK’s only regional event for heating and renewable energy professionals.

Beginning on September 10th at Coventry’s Ricoh Arena, the Roadshow is visiting five strategically located venues across the UK and will present some of the best and most innovative heating and low carbon technologies currently on the market, specifically for installers, specifiers and contractors.

OFTEC registrations director, Adrian Lightwood, says: “The Heating and Renewables Roadshows present an excellent opportunity to showcase OFTEC’s new scopes of registration covering heat pumps, solar thermal systems and solid fuel, with biomass registrations to be launched later this year.

“With oil prices remaining so low and the trend predicted to continue, the future for oil looks positive. However, OFTEC recognises the increasing role domestic renewable heating technologies will play in the longer term and fully supports the UK’s transition to low carbon heat.

“That’s why we have launched the new renewable registrations, as well as solid fuel, to help forward thinking oil installation businesses expand their customer reach.  Those installers already working in the renewable and solid fuel sectors can also take advantage of the extensive benefits, from self-certification to free technical advice, and value for money OFTEC registration provides.

“It’s an exciting time for OFTEC as we move into a more energy diverse era. Our aim is to consolidate OFTEC’s position as one of the leading Competent Persons Scheme operators within the heating sector and remain the quality benchmark for installers, servicing technicians and homeowners alike.”
