“With oil prices remaining so low and the trend predicted to continue, the future for oil looks positive,” said OFTEC registrations director Adrian Lightwood.

“However, OFTEC recognises the increasing role domestic renewable heating technologies will play in the longer term and fully supports the UK’s transition to low carbon heat. We want to help forward thinking oil installation businesses to expand their customer reach.

“The Heating and Renewables Roadshows present an excellent opportunity to showcase OFTEC’s new scopes of registration covering heat pumps, solar thermal systems and solid fuel, with biomass registrations to be launched later this year.

“It’s an exciting time for OFTEC as we move into a more energy diverse era. Our aim is to consolidate OFTEC’s position as one of the leading Competent Persons Scheme operators within the heating sector and remain the quality benchmark for installers, servicing technicians and homeowners alike.

“Plus, those installers already working in the renewable and solid fuel sectors can also take advantage of the extensive benefits, from self-certification to free technical advice, and value for money OFTEC registration provides.”
