Re-invented to put profit in the pockets of every installer, whether just setting up, surviving or thriving in the renewables market, Plumb Center’s Practical Installer will include a ‘business clinic’ at Ecobuild 2015 (www.ecobuild.co.uk) promoting opportunities across the biomass and heat pump markets.
Acting as the business hub for Ecobuild’s Energy Section, Practical Installer will feature centrally amidst the latest innovations from across the renewables sector including, biogas/anaerobic digestion, biomass, CHP, geothermal, energy from waste, heat pumps, solar thermal, solar PV and wind.
From ‘quick wins’ to full solution installations, Plumb Center’s renewables experts will deliver tailored business advice to all installers – the seasoned MCS-accredited installer and gas installers keen to break into the green energy market.
Helping MCS installers operate a super efficient business, Plumb Center has recruited a new central team tasked with helping customers to convert leads into successful jobs. Dedicated to researching and devising whole-house solutions and passing hot, qualified leads onto MCS installers, these specialists form just one part of Plumb Center’s business provision to renewables installers.
Tim Pollard, head of sustainability for Plumb Center, said: “Working in partnership with Plumb Center will provide MCS and renewables installers with a more effective business model to turn around quotations promptly and accurately.”
Guiding gas installers to open new business opportunities, Plumb Center’s team will offer advice on optimising sales and marketing channels, policy, finance and best practices to integrate energy efficiency measures and renewable technologies into new and existing client projects.
Helping installers to future-proof their business and reap the reward of their investment, Plumb Center will also guide installers on ways they can prepare customers’ properties for energy efficient and renewable technologies as part of general improvements.
Based upon the principle of ‘crawl, walk, run’, Practical Installer is urging installers to bring along their questions and business challenges to receive on the spot feedback and guidance.
Ecobuild takes place from 3rd to 5th March 2015 at ExCeL in London and is supported by leading trade bodies NICEIC, HETAS and MCS.
