Wolseley Group has embarked on a series of Future Energy Transition events to showcase the broad array of technologies and solutions now available to support the sustainable energy transition across the UK’s diverse housing stock.

Over the next three months, Wolseley will run a series of local events across the UK aimed at helping professional installers to understand the multitude of more sustainable plumbing and heating options available and the considerations around applying new technologies. There will also be up to 20 equipment suppliers at the early evening events.

As part of the UK’s wider energy transition, there is growing appetite among UK householders to move to more sustainable forms of home heating and plumbing, yet according to a recent survey for Wolseley, three in five households do not feel that they know enough about the low carbon energy options available to them.

As a leading trade merchant in the heating solutions market, Wolseley is aiming to support installers – many of whom are Wolseley customers – to increase their knowledge around low carbon heating solutions so that they can, in turn, drive greater understanding amongst householders.

The events are focused on the advisory, technical, and propositional angle of low carbon heating solutions with the aim of outlining the opportunities that the UK’s energy transition will create for installers. The events include interactive and educational sessions on topics such as legislation, training, and technology selection, as well as presentations and Q&A sessions featuring industry experts and insiders. The events run from 5pm – 8pm (arrival for customers from 4.30pm).

“Our sector is always busy meeting demand from householders, so taking the latest technology and solutions on the road is an important way to increase not only awareness but understanding of what the best options for different types of UK home now are,” said Nick Coad, Director of Innovation, Wolseley Group.
