The Energy Saving Trust are running a series of RHI focused events this April and May in collaboration with the Department of Energy and Climate Change (DECC).
The informative half day events will provide Welsh SME’s an arena for discussion about the RHI and the opportunities it presents for Wales. Speakers include DECC and Ofgem, and a local installer will be speaking about their interpretation of the RHI and how they plan to integrate the programme with ECO. Attendees will then have the floor for a quick fire Q and A session with DECC, Ofgem, the Energy Saving Trust and a representative for local installers.
Limited spaces remain for the Roadshows in Llandudno, Aberystwyth and Swansea. For more details and to register a place please visit our website, or email [email protected].
