Listers are now Accredited for Green Deal

Lister Trade Frames, of Stoke on Trent, have just been awarded Green Deal Installer Accreditation through FENSA (The Fenestration Self Assessment Scheme). The presentation of the certificate was made at the FIT Show Glass and Glazing Industry exhibition in Telford.

Green Deal is the Government’s leading environment initiative. Put simply, the Government is establishing a framework to enable consumers to make energy efficiency improvements to their homes, including energy efficient windows and doors at no upfront cost by making payments through their energy bills. The expected financial savings made through the energy efficiency improvements must be equal to or greater than the costs attached to the energy bill. This is known as “the golden rule” of the Green Deal.

Phil Warren, Listers Sales Director, said that he was proud that Listers Projects team had gained the accreditation by demonstrating their proficiency of installation. “We have been installing windows and doors on a commercial basis for some years now and have always tried to achieve the highest standards. Having undergone such rigorous investigation via FENSA under the UKAS scheme for Green Deal Installers, we now have independent verification of our skills and competency.”

Achieving Green Deal Installer accreditation is no simple task. There are stringent rules and testing for those wanting to be a part of the provision of Green Deal measures overseen by UKAS. Window and door installers have to demonstrate a range of competencies including PAS 2030 for the measures to be installed. The Certification Bodies, in this case FENSA, assess the installer organisation against the relevant parts of the standard to ensure their employees and systems meet the relevant standards.

Listers believe that there will be a growing demand from Local Authorities and Housing Associations wanting to tap into the funding provided through Green Deal finance to improve their housing stock’s energy efficiency. They will need to use accredited installers for windows and doors to Green Deal standards and Listers are now providing that service.

Phil says that while this may not be a game changer for our industry it is one of the many diverse services that Listers offer underlining their overall commitment to quality and industry leading skills; “Listers like to be at the forefront of changes in our industry. We never bury our heads in the sand when it comes to change. We are one of just a few companies to have achieved this standard and we know that this is going to be a benefit to our business operations and reputation.”
