Renewable Energy Assurance Listed
REA – the voice of the renewables industry in the UK
The REAL Assurance Scheme was set up by the Renewable Energy Association. It aims to guarantee a high quality experience for consumers wishing to buy or lease small generation units for their home, for a community building or for a small business. REAL membership is a sign that the supplier has agreed to abide by the high standards set out in their consumer code. The REAL logo is a symbol of professional excellence.
There is a Supervisory Panel whose role is to oversee the Scheme. It is chaired by an independent consumer representative, Dr. Gill Owen. A majority of the panel members are independent of the industry. All the panel members are dedicated to representing the greater good of the sustainable energy industry rather than any individual sector within it.
Microgeneration Certification Scheme
The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is an independent certification scheme designed to certify microgeneration products and installers in accordance with consistent standards. The scheme was launched by the Department for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform.
The primary aim of the MCS is to provide consumers with confidence and protection in this energy supply option by guaranteeing that microgeneration products and installers who carry the mark meet, and will continue to meet, robust quality standards.
The MCS mark guarantees that EvoEnergy follow a code of practice that meets the guidelines set by the Office of Fair Trading Consumer Code Approval Scheme.
