SAV’s Advanced Service Engineer Scheme has been awarded funding by Nottingham City Council’s Environment and Sustainability Division for the training of Heat Network Engineers on Heat Network fundamentals, including the commissioning, servicing, and the efficient ongoing operation of these networks.
This will encourage and develop green skills within the green sector, promoting local green jobs in the regions, as well as, ensuring that Heat Networks deliver on their promise, which is to reliably deliver low-cost, low-carbon heat to consumers.
The Heat Training Grant scheme is being managed by the Midlands Net Zero Hub on behalf of the Government’s Department for Energy Security and Net Zero.
Currently SAV have state-of-the-art Heat Network Training facilities located in Woking and Manchester, with another planned for our office in the heart of Edinburgh.
