Energy Assets Powers Meter Installation Expertise at New Training Centre

Energy Assets has unveiled a state-of-the-art training centre at Darwen, Lancashire, to provide its 60-strong team of meter engineers with one of the energy industry’s most advanced learning environments.

The investment in the new centre provides engineers with access to every type of physical meter configuration they are likely to encounter in industrial and commercial buildings, along with a ‘classroom’ space featuring interactive touchscreen technology with self-guided ‘drag and drop’ capability.

“Our directly-employed team of field engineers has expanded significantly in recent years in line with our success in partnering with energy suppliers on meter installation and exchange programmes”, said Garry Ashworth, Training Manager at Energy Assets. “This is the perfect moment to bring all our available training resources into one dedicated space.”

The centre will be used on rotation by all Energy Assets’ engineers, whether they are upskilling from AMR installer to a meter engineer, or receiving periodic skills and process training linked to the latest technical standards.

“Our training facilities are in the process of being approved by the National Skills Academy for Power and accredited by the Energy & Utility Skills Register, underlining the ‘gold standard’ level of training that we offer our engineers for all meter installations, including advanced smart meters (SMETS2),” said Garry.

“The new centre is just part of the support provided at Energy Assets for our installers. In such a fast-moving industry, we pride ourselves on being at the leading edge of the knowledge curve, not only through this new physical facility, but also through the use of mandated e-learning sessions and monthly skills audits.”


Energy Assets Networks Provides Valuable Training for ICP’s

On September 10th 2019 Energy Assets Networks held an all-day event in Leeds for G98 & G99 Policy training for Independent Connection Providers (ICPs) within the industry to update their knowledge. It also provided the 14 attendees an opportunity to ask experts any questions regarding new regulations and policies in real-time.

The G98 & G99 Policies cover technical engineering requirement policies including operations, network specific implementation and compliance.
