  • Technical presentations on heat pumps and battery storage

  • Exhibitors on hand to demonstrate their products and services

Heat pumps and electrical energy storage will be the hot topics when our 2023 Toolbox Talks hit the road later this year.

Delegates will enjoy an in-depth technical insight into the rise of renewable energy systems – and the role Members will have to play in their design, installation and maintenance.

Our invaluable FREE update sessions will once again be touring 12 venues across Scotland in May and June, kicking off at Murrayfield in Edinburgh on 2 May.

And as always, our experts will be on hand to discuss the burning issues via two presentations:

  • Presentation 1: An overview of the technology and electrical requirements for air source heat pumps (ASHPs), outlining how electrical contractors can get involved and what to consider when installing the technology.

  • Presentation 2: Electrical energy storage systems (EESS), focusing on the technical implications of storage in domestic and commercial environments.

Members will have the chance to ask questions and discuss topical matters face-to-face with our Technical Advisers, with other SELECT staff on hand to answer other queries.

Presentation topics include heat pumps

Representatives from the Scottish Joint Industry Board (SJIB) and Scottish Electrical Charitable Training Trust (SECTT) will also be attending selected shows, along with the team behind our SELECTcerts service.

Bob Cairney, Director of Technical Services, said: “Last year’s Toolbox Talks were a huge success and we are looking forward to meeting up face-to-face with Members once again.

“The role of the electrical contractor in installing ASHPs is a subject that is becoming increasingly topical, and we’re keen to explain to Members how the landscape could look in the coming years. We will be inviting representatives from the Scottish and Northern Ireland Plumbing Employers’ Federation (SNIPEF) to give their view to help everyone gain a better understanding of how the two disciplines will work together on such technology.

“We’re also keen to discuss EESS as part of the wider conversation on renewable technology, with practical advice and information about the latest developments in battery storage.”

There will be lots to see and do at the events across Scotland

Each event will feature exhibitors from a range of leading manufacturers and service providers, including SELECT Associate Members Aico, Electrium, Luceco, Megger, Scolmore and TIS, so you’ll have plenty of opportunity to see the latest technology first-hand.

Events kick off at 9.30am with coffee and rolls, with lunch at the end of each session and goodie bags that will include the day’s presentation. Toolbox Talks are free to attend for all SELECT Members. So check the map for this year’s dates and venues and sign up NOW – it’s bound to be busy!
