MCS Umbrella Scheme

If you are an installer, developer, self-builder or homeowner, choose Neutral Energy as your heat pump specialist to get access to all the benefits of MCS. 

Through our MCS umbrella scheme, we offer the MCS Design & Commissioning Package on all the heat pump products we supply.

What is the MCS Scheme?


The Microgeneration Certification Scheme (MCS) is an accreditation process that demonstrates the quality of renewable technologies.

A heat pump installation must be designed, fitted and commissioned to the high standards of MCS criteria in order to be accredited under the scheme.

In order to be eligible for the Government’s Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI), Or the upcoming Boiler Upgrade Scheme (BUS) & heat pump installations must be MCS accredited.

Neutral Energy's MCS Package


Our MCS Umbrella scheme manages the key elements of a heat pump installation to ensure the installation is carried out to the MCS Certification Standards.

Neutral Energy are fully MCS certified and will take responsibility for the design and sizing of the heat pump system (in accordance with MIS-3005). We will provide support throughout the installation and one of our engineers will inspect and commission the installation once complete.

After final commissioning, we will register the installation with MCS and building control, and provide the end user with a complete handover pack of all the documentation, along with RHI application support.

Heating Installers


Neutral Energy's MCS Umbrella Scheme offers support and technical advice to heating and plumbing engineers who wish to expand their offering but  do not hold the MCS accreditation.

As the installer, you will continue to engage directly with your customer whilst using Neutral Energy's expertise to provide a quality MCS compliant installation.

Builders & Developers


Air and ground source heat pumps deliver significant carbon savings making compliance with Building Regulations more straightforward.

We understand that builders and developers want assurances that the heat pump system will perform for the homeowner. Neutral Energy will complete a bespoke room by room survey to determine heat losses. This will enable us to select the ideal heat pump for each property, which we will supply as part of our package, including ancillary components and an appropriate cylinder.
