Supporting the development of the environmental economy

 

Rising energy costs, concerns over security of supply and a greater awareness of sustainability issues has led to a growing number of environmental schemes and initiatives.

Encouraging more efficient use of energy is a key objective for governments to meet climate change targets, increase business competitiveness and protect vulnerable consumers.

The expertise Gemserv developed in helping create and govern energy markets provides an ideal platform from which to design services specifically aimed at this rapidly growing area.

Since our first significant involvement in the sector in 2007 as accrediting consultants for the Carbon Trust Standard, we have built a highly experienced team which plays a vital role in key environmental initiatives in the UK.

We also administer the Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS), working with installers and manufacturers to develop and maintain quality standards for products and installations. Our in-depth understanding of this sector helped us secure the contract for the development and delivery of the Biomass Suppliers List (BSL), a programme designed to ensure sustainable biomass is being supported under the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).
