Products and Installers


Certificated installers may only specify certificated products. The list of products is currently managed by the Microgeneration Certification Scheme and can be found on their website  These products have undergone a comprehensive registration procedure requiring compliance with strict criteria and current testing standards.

Any products exceeding the definition of microgeneration as per Section 82 of the Energy Act 2004 must be listed on the Enhanced Capital Allowance (ECA) Scheme  The Energy Act 2004 defines microgeneration as the production of heat and/or electricity from a low carbon source and specifies maximum size limits of 50kW electricity and 45kW thermal.


To be eligible for a grant, you must use one of the Certificated Installers registered with the Microgeneration Certification Scheme. For further information and contact details of certificated installers serving your region, please refer to You are strongly advised to seek at least two quotations from different suppliers for each of your proposed microgeneration technologies and energy efficiency measures, although you need only submit copies of your preferred quotation with your application.
