Quantum Group, established in 1997, is a leading decarbonisation specialist and renewable training provider. We offer bespoke energy-saving and low-carbon system designs and installations for the built environment. In parallel, our renewable training business provides a range of training products and services dedicated to accelerating the transition to a net zero workforce. By equipping both students and engineers with the necessary green skills we aim to contribute to achieving our broader net-zero climate ambitions in the future.

Quantum Training

Since June 2021, Quantum has been building a Renewable Training Business which has evolved to become a leading renewable training provider for existing engineers and students in the Further Education environment. We started our journey by offering in-person training at our Head Office in Rainham, London where we delivered renewable training courses at Level 3 including Air Source Heat Pump, Solar PV, and Electrical Technologies including Electrical Vehicle Charging and Battery Storage.

As demand for renewables training grew, we identified an opportunity to add a Quantum touch and offer a more practical and hands-on approach for low-carbon learning. This led to the design and installation of Quantum Renewable Training Facilities across Greater and South-East London Colleges. In addition to training adults who are looking to retrain and upskill, most notably heating and plumbing engineers, it very quickly became evident to Quantum that young learners within further education also needed a clear route to get to the required level of technical competency to meet industry standards.

Quantum, therefore, developed a ‘Sustainable Energy and Renewable Technologies’ course for students at Level 2 ability. This course received ‘assured’ status by City & Guilds in April 2023. The course offers a unique opportunity for 16 to 19-year-olds to obtain practical skills covering five core renewable technologies, as well as learn the necessary theory alongside this.

Beyond London, there is an immediate challenge for colleges across the country to address the green skills gap, and Quantum are now excited to be in a position where we can offer support to colleges along every step of the journey.

Industry Background

To combat climate change, governments worldwide are embracing the ambitious goal of achieving Net Zero emissions. The UK government, aligned with its commitment under the Paris Agreement, has set a legally binding target to reach Net Zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.

The built environment, estimated to be responsible for 25% of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions and 40% of the country’s carbon footprint, needs to play a crucial role in meeting Net Zero targets. As part of the transformative journey to Net Zero, industry will require a shift in approach and priorities, such as investing in new green technologies and in upskilling the current workforce to enable them to implement “greener” solutions. The developing green skills which encompass competencies in renewable energy technologies; circular economy principles; climate change adaptation, and resource efficiency is at the forefront of the drive towards a greener future.

Green Skills Training Facilities

We have designed state-of-the-art Quantum Renewable Training Facilities specifically tailored to provide an immersive and hands-on learning experience for students and professionals in the renewable energy industry.

These facilities are developed using industry-leading equipment to replicate real-world scenarios, allowing learners to gain practical skills and knowledge that mirrors the challenges and complexities they will encounter in the field as a future renewables engineer. We continuously update our facilities to incorporate the latest advancements and ensure that our learners are exposed to cutting-edge technologies and the latest industry trends.

Our Quantum Renewable Training Facilities are purpose-built training environments equipped with five core renewable technologies:

  • Air Source Heat Pumps
  • Solar photovoltaic (PV)
  • EV charging
  • Battery Energy Storage
  • Solar Thermal
