A certified installer training course on how to identify and appropriate renewable battery storage technology has been launched thanks to a new partnership between leading battery professionals AceOn and training provider GTEC. The Telford-based company signed a deal earlier this year with Yorkshire-based GTEC to offer industry-certified training to its clients and customers in the installation of renewable electric energy storage systems. Mark Thompson, founder of AceOn, said the partnership was a major step forward in providing the skills needed to achieve the green revolution that Boris Johnson promised in response to the climate change crisis. Initially only available at GTEC’s Yorkshire Centre, from September the battery storage courses will be held at the Pump House in Shrewsbury. “Collaborating with GTEC to deliver training to our potential and installer customers is a really big step forward for AceOn. GTEC will use our equipment to train them and provide the skills needed to truly accelerate the transition to renewable energy.” AceOn has played an important role in setting the new national standard for these Qualifications By working with the Microsurgery Certification Scheme (MCS) we are pleased to be now involved in helping train the next generation of highly qualified installers. “We are very proud of our roles in every stage of this circular economy – from product creation to installation, service, recycling and now training. Together with the Virtual Renewable Power Plant (VPP), we can now offer a comprehensive solution that covers every aspect of renewable energy.” To help the country meet its legal obligations to be carbon neutral by 2050 and protect the environment for future generations, this new partnership will help us create new jobs and thrive as the Green Revolution grows.” Mark said the training will cover AceOn’s private and public partners, with the VPP attracting interest. A large number of social housing providers and local authorities since its launch in November.” The VPP uses the latest battery storage technology and smart energy management software to allow homes to capture solar energy and then store it in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way for later use. “Not only does this system lower electricity costs for the homeowner or renter, it makes the most efficient use of renewable energy and also provides a revenue stream when surplus energy is resold to the national grid.” Griff Thomas of GTEC said: “We are excited to be working with AceOn, using their excellent technology to train installers – in center and on site (we offer custom options for larger organisations) – while contributing to the UK’s low-carbon goals. Electrical energy storage is an essential part of The path to net zero, helping to make the power grid more resilient and sustainable.” As one of the first centers to offer this type of training, we are pleased to be leading the campaign with the support of other important players in the industry, such as AceOn. This is an interesting time in the construction services sector – merchants and those in the housing sector must seize the opportunity to make our homes greener and more cost-effective.” AceOn Group has 30 years of experience in the battery industry and has a team of experts in battery design and manufacturing. The company is one of the The UK’s leading provider of lithium-ion battery systems and has a diverse team of battery professionals, including mechanical and electrical engineers.Visit the AceOn website for more information on the AceOn range.
