The National Skills Academy for Environmental Technologies has published a new guide that provides an overview of how various environmental technologies work and their suitability for different applications.
The guide, Introduction to Environmental Technology Systems, is for those studying the level 3 QGF Award in the Fundamental Principles of Environmental Technology Systems and is available through the Skills Academy, but can also be purchased as a stand-alone document. This is suitable for anyone interested in the basic principles of the main technologies, such as businesses considering a move into renewables installation, or sales and service teams who need to advise customers.
The material covers the fundamentals of micro- renewable and water conservation technologies, including solar thermal hot water, heat pumps, biomass, PV, micro-wind, micro-hydropower, micro- combined heat and power, rainwater harvesting and grey water re-use.
The guide joins a series of documents from the Skills Academy aimed at helping businesses take advantage of low carbon business opportunities. The guide is available to buy in booklet or loose-leaf ring binder format, priced £19.99 from www.nsaet.org.uk/products
