What is the MCS and how does it protect homeowners?

Ian Rippin - MCS CEO

Ian Rippin, CEO of the MCS (Microgeneration Certification Scheme), explains what the MCS is and how it provides protection to homeowners in the UK. We have a candid conversation about the MCS and the need for a property passport in the UK.

We also discuss some of the issues facing the MCS and whether there will be enough certified and competent installers to fit the 600,000 heat pumps per year that the UK government is pushing for by 2028, and learn about a new exciting apprentice programme that is going to be rolled out next year.

We would like to thank IMS Heat Pump Installers, an award-winning installer of air source and ground source heat pumps, for sponsoring this interview.


The MCS Helpdesk operates from Monday to Friday (9.00am – 4.30pm) and is closed on bank holidays. The MCS Helpdesk number is 0333 103 8130.
