Want to be sure we’re qualified for the job? We’re fully accredited with all major industry bodies and we’ve got the letters and logos to prove it. Here’s a quick rundown of our accreditations and why they matter.
Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS)
This is the most important accreditation to look out for. It’s an independent scheme that guarantees consistently high standards for microgeneration products and installers, following a strict code of practice that meets the guidelines set by the Office of Fair Trading Consumer Code Approval Scheme. Crucially, it’s also linked to financial incentives like the feed-in tariff, meaning that if your installer isn’t MCS-accredited, you won’t qualify for payments.
Renewable Energy Assurance Listed (REAL)
This accreditation is managed by the Renewable Energy Association, a not-for-profit trade association established in 2001 to represent British renewable energy producers and promote renewable energy in the UK. We’ve always acted in our customers’ best interests and REAL listing recognises this. It’s your guarantee of exceptional customer service, and shows we’ve agreed to abide by the high standards set out in the REAL Consumer Code 2010.
Independent Warranty Association (IWA)
We’re planning on being around for a very long time and we won’t make a commitment to you unless we’re 100% sure we can fulfil it. Even so, it would be wrong to not have some third-party backup, and that’s where the IWA comes in.
A market leader in the home improvement industry, IWA is backed by Elite Insurance Ltd and regulated by the FSA. They’re very selective over who they work with and agreed to insure us following an audit and after taking references from our suppliers. In the unlikely event that we should cease trading the IWA will fulfil our guarantee in their place. They also provide full deposit protection.

ISO 9001:2008 Quality Management
The International Organisation of Standardization standard 9001:2008 is awarded to companies that show quality management. The standard is a formal statement from management, closely linked to the business and marketing plan and to customer needs. The quality policy is understood by all members of the organisation, and good customer satisfaction is a large part in gaining the award.
ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management
The ISO 14001:2004 certificate in Environmental Management is for companies that measure and control their impact on the environment, i.e. air, water and land. Companies must comply with all applicable laws and regulations and continually improve on their waste management and environmental practices. EvoEnergy is committed to reducing our impact on the environment.
The Safe Contractor health and safety pre-qualification scheme promotes higher standards of competence and compliance within it’s accredited companies. This is achieved through rigorous internal health and safety regimes and health and safety assessments, all of which EvoEnergy have excelled at.
National Inspection Council for Electrical Installation Contracting (NICEIC)
The NICEIC Approved Contractor scheme is an industry-leading standard that tells you to expect the highest level of skills and service. It’s approved by the UK Accreditation Service (UKAS) to EN 45011, meaning it’s independently and fairly run.
As an approved contractor we’re inspected yearly. We design, install, inspect and test our electrical work in accordance with the UK standard, BS 7671, and issue safety certificates once the work’s complete.
Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS)
This scheme was set up to help the construction industry improve quality and reduce accidents. It’s managed by CSCS Limited, which brings together board members from the Construction Confederation, Federation of Master Builders, GMB Union and National Specialist Contractors Council, amongst others. Government guidelines state that it’s a required standard for anybody working on public-sector projects.
The Contractors Health and Safety Assessment Scheme (CHAS)
CHAS is a nationally recognised standard for health and safety. It allows suppliers like EvoEnergy to demonstrate their competence and helps buyers find suitable suppliers without having to run their own assessment procedures.
CHAS has assessed our organisation, our health and safety policy statement and our specific health and safety arrangements to confirm we’re following all the right procedures.
Constructionline is a UK Government Certification Scheme, certifying that EvoEnergy has met pre-qualification requirements appropriate to public and private sector procurement.
