Energy is a key economic sector for the UK. Within the built environment, government initiatives such as feed-in tariffs, the Renewable Heat Incentive, and particularly the Green Deal, demonstrate a wider commitment to not only reducing carbon emissions, but also cutting energy costs, improving energy efficiency and tackling fuel poverty.
The ABBE Level 3 Award in Energy Efficiency Measures for Older and Traditional Buildings qualification has been developed to raise awareness of older, traditional or vulnerable buildings (e.g. buildings built prior to 1919).
This qualification is compliant and meets the Trustmark Standards for the PAS 2035 Retrofit Assessor status to be able to carry out Pathway B and C assessments.
This qualification is design to cover all aspects of this role. On completing the qualification, learners will be able to:
- recognise the age, nature and characteristics of older and traditional buildings
- assess options for the introduction of energy efficiency measures for older and traditional buildings making recommendations and giving advice on the introduction of energy efficiency measures
