Flexi-Orb Scheme (NEW)

We are the first certification body that will be offering Flexi-Orb.

Launched in 2024, Flexi-Orb is recognised by UKAS and showcases that that you are a business that is both technically capable of installing renewable technologies and whilst also operating to quality standards, meaning a solid offering to consumers.

Currently covering EV Chargers, Solar PV and Electrical Energy Storage, Flexi-Orb is a fantastic choice for the business who is serious about sustaining good business practice and wants to showcase their all round commitment to quality.

Why do I need Flexi-Orb?

The Government and energy providers are working towards an objective to ensure we meet the net zero target.  Many contracts and funding schemes around the renewable energy efficiency technologies need to be certified to a recognised standard.

Flexi-Orb is best practice in renewable energy installation for new and existing buildings. Installing to this standard provides your customers with the trust and confidence that your business is delivering to a high and recognised quality.

Certification is always a benefit as it brings commercial opportunities, however there are other reasons why organisations are choosing Flexi-Orb such as continuous business improvement, reducing risk and demonstrating social responsibility to climate change.

What is Flexi-Orb?

The Flexi-Orb scheme does differ from other schemes such as MCS as it has a strong focus on Business Processes as well as Technical Competency. The assessment process covers:

Competency, training and qualifications of the installers for each technology

Demonstrating an understanding of the Flexi-Orb scheme

Ensuring a validated design for each specific installation

Having a set of procedures/processes in place that meet the scheme across business and installation

Regular inspections to reduce your risk and support your ongoing commitment to quality

Customer care and legislation including technology performance calculations

The benefits to those who are part of the Flexi-Orb scheme

Accessing supply chains under larger energy providers and principle contractors, meaning opportunities for growth for your business

Demonstrating a robust business aswell as high quality installs to all potential customers

Having a robust management system in place will benefit your business in terms of improvement, effectiveness and efficiencies
