MCS 1 Million Milestone

27th Oct, 2016

The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) was launched 10 years ago as a quality assurance scheme, aiding the progress in the microgeneration industry and addressing any perceived market place opinions on microgeneration technologies.

The MCS is seen by many as an important certification scheme for making a significant contribution to cutting the UK’s dependency on fossil fuels and carbon dioxide emissions.

It covers a range of electricity generating technologies with a capacity of up to 50kW, and heat generating technologies with a capacity of up to 45kW.

MCS are delighted to announce that since the MCS Installation Database went live in April 2010, the number of installations registered has surpassed the 1 million mark! This is great news and is not only evidence of the significant growth in the number of installations within the renewables market, but also the hard work that Gemserv have put into building and maintaining the database.

The Scheme remains committed to upholding robust standards and providing consumers with the assurance that their installations meet their quality expectations.

We hope you will join us with celebrating this significant milestone!
