Renewable distributor, Waxman Energy has joined together with Renewable Energy Investments to host two open days designed to help installers understand the opportunity in the commercial rooftop market.

The open days aim to provide attendees with in-depth information and advice on how best to take advantage of the opportunity available to installers.

The first open day takes place on 2 September 2015 at Waxman’s Training Academy in Elland. The second open day will be held at the Hilton Hotel in Swindon on 3 September. The events will pay particular attention to the technical aspects of developing and installing power purchase agreement (PPA) funded projects.

Areas covered at the event include:

  • Overview to REI and the Investment Funding Process

  • Introduction to REI’s Quality Management System

  • Installation Handbook and Scope of Works

  • Hand Over Packs

  • Project commissioning and completion

  • PV*Sol Presentation and Q&A

  • Introductory presentations from

    • Sungrow

    • BenQ

    • Schletter

Waxman Energy claims that the open days build on the company’s wider campaign to raise awareness around the potential of the UK commercial rooftop sector. However despite political support and a number of policy changes, the commercial rooftop sector has failed to see significant traction.
