What is MCS accreditation in the UK?

MCS stands for Microgeneration Certification Scheme. It is a government-backed quality assurance scheme that certifies microgeneration technologies and installers in the UK. Microgeneration technologies are small-scale renewable energy technologies, such as solar PV, biomass, wind, heat pumps, and heat products.

MCS certification is voluntary, but it is widely recognized as a mark of quality and reliability. MCS certified installers and products are eligible for a number of government incentives, such as the Renewable Heat Incentive and the Green Deal.

Benefits of MCS accreditation

There are a number of benefits to choosing MCS accredited installers and products, including:

  • Peace of mind knowing that your installation has been carried out to the highest standards.
  • Eligibility for government incentives.
  • Access to a network of qualified and experienced installers.
  • A guarantee on the workmanship and materials used in your installation.


MCS accreditation is a valuable tool for consumers who are looking to install renewable energy technologies in their homes. It provides peace of mind knowing that the installation has been carried out to the highest standards and that the installer is qualified and experienced.
