Independent metering specialist MWA Technology is seeking to raise awareness of the government's Renewable Heat Incentive at The Energy Event 2013, which starts today.
According to MWA managing director Martin Wardell, the scheme is currently suffering as a result of incorrect schematic diagrams and meters not being fitted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions or Ofgem guidance.
The scheme is aimed at financially incentivising home owners, businesses and organisations to use renewable energy systems as a way of heating properties, and Mr Wardell believes the scheme currently suffers from incorrect schematic diagrams and meters not being fitted in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions or Ofgem guidance
“There are some massive financial opportunities for people to benefit from RHI, but we have to help them understand what is involved and what they get out of it,” said managing director Martin Wardell, who formed the company 20 years ago.
“We have to move to sustainable energy and the Renewable Heat Incentive has its part to play. In order to measure how effective the savings are, we need to ensure that the right meters are used, as this will ultimately dictate your output and how much you will be paid.”
MWA Technology will be using its appearance at the Energy Event to celebrate its 20th anniversary and its range of services that include repair and refurbishment, testing, onsite support and assistance with automatic meter reading.
Visitors will be able to talk to technical experts and see firsthand the latest meters currently being used by distributors, contractors, OEMs and energy monitoring professionals across the UK.
Mr Wardell added that MWA aims to be at the forefront of new developments in the world of energy management.
“This group is determined to build more sustainable systems, create energy efficient homes/buildings and develop new ways of generating energy,” he said.
