Marshall-Tufflex’s ground-breaking E-PRO Approved accreditation scheme for installers of energy management systems has temporarily closed to new applicants following exceptionally high demand for places.

The scheme hit initial membership targets within months of launching. New applicants are being acknowledged and placed on a waiting list.

Marshall-Tufflex Chief Executive Paul Hetherington said: “We are delighted with the massive success of E-PRO Approved and the high number of electrical contractors and energy management specialists who have applied to become members. We have been inundated with applicants, which demonstrates the industry’s desire and need for such an initiative. It does mean,


however, that we need to temporarily halt admissions in order to process installers currently going through the accreditation procedure and support new E-PRO Approved businesses.”

E-PRO is the UK’s first accreditation for electrical contractors working within the energy management sector. It is open to members of NICEIC, ECA, SELECT or NAPIT. Installers who successfully apply

E-PRO is the first approval scheme of its kind for electrical contractors installing energy management solutions. Those accepted on to the programme are trained and fully supported by Marshall-Tufflex.

Ms Rudd, MP for Hastings and Rye, said of the scheme: “I welcome Marshall-Tufflex’s new investment in energy management education and skills and wish them every success.”
