UK: Mitsubishi Electric has teamed-up with Harlow College to establish a new on-campus project for the next generation of heating engineers to train using green technologies.

The Renewable Energy Training Centre at Harlow College will train students on installing and maintaining renewable energy appliances. Within the centre, work-stations will allow learners to develop an understanding of how to install and maintain air-source heat pumps.

The college tutors, who are certified to a minimum of NVQ Level 3, have also undertaken specific training on Mitsubishi Electric’s Ecodan heat pumps at the company’s UK headquarters in Hatfield.

The centre is equipped with six Ecodan air source heat pumps, roof-mounted PV panels, associated collection points and energy-storage unit and two electric vehicle charging points. The solar panels will provide enough energy to power the centre, and any extra energy will be put back into the National Grid.
