Commenting on the news, Aadil Qureshi said: “At the heart of our business is a shared obsession with empowering everyone in the UK to upgrade their home and save money every month. But one of the biggest issues facing mass uptake of heat pumps is a lack of skilled installers. Our solution is simple – train thousands of existing heating engineers and give them the skills, knowledge and tools to unlock the support for thousands of homeowners wanting to decarbonise their homes and save money on their energy bills.”
