The Scottish Government supports the Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES) since March 2011, that subsidises 90 % of solar thermal systems in communities which fall within the lowest band of the Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation. However, the community has to decide either to accept the grant from CARES without the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI) or to find the capital funding without a grant and enjoy a long-term return from the tariffs. So the result became that only very few projects wanted to miss out on the tariffs and solar thermal applications are no longer benefitting much under the main CARES scheme. See further background in the news.
This report was prepared for the Scottish government by BRE Scotland and Waterman Group, and looks at the loads imposed when solar thermal hot water collectors are attached to roofs and walls. Through this, they develop a risk-based approach for the installation of solar collectors onto different surfaces.
This is an example of a document outlining the main features of a training course for domestic solar hot water systems. It includes the main outcomes, the work plan of the course, as well as employability skills which are developed throughout the course.
