Businesses in London will be able to apply for up to £1,000 of funding to support employee training on solar, energy storage and low carbon technologies.

That is part of the so-called ‘Solar Skills London‘ scheme launched by Solar Energy UK and the Mayor of London last year.

The initiative includes a series of workshops for future solar sector trainees and the creation of a placement programme for them with businesses in the industry.

Companies interested in taking part in the programme are able to apply on the Solar Energy UK website until 14th January.

The Mayor of London has committed to deploying 1GW of solar PV in the capital by 2030.
