Mark Glasgow, owner of Edinburgh Boiler Company, has announced plans to invest ሚሊዮን 3 million in new training centers to address skills shortages in the green heating and energy sectors.

The first Energy Training Academy will open in Edinburgh in November. It is followed by regional centers in Scotland, including in the northeast.
“The current shortage of skills is a serious concern,” Glasgow said.
This is a vision I have seen for some time, and given the speed at which our industry is evolving into sustainable heating technologies, I feel now is the time to move forward with my plans.
