Contractor Quality Scheme

The Contractor Quality Scheme (CQS) is being developed to assure high quality, low carbon energy installations in Jersey.

CQS incorporates industry developed standards to ensure that installations are of a high quality and demonstrate a clear commitment to customer care and protection.


Securing approval under the scheme will demonstrate a contractor meets industry standards; highlighting quality, compliance and encouraging the growth of green skills locally.

Low carbon heating technologies covered by CQS will initially include air source heat pumps, electric flow boilers, electric storage heaters and panel heaters, with additional technologies to be added as the scheme is further rolled out.


Working with the Government of Jersey

The Scheme is being developed to support the Carbon Neutral Roadmap of policies to enable Jersey to lower emissions in order to reach its goal of net zero by 2050. As per policy HT1, government will run a low-carbon heating incentive which provides funds to businesses and households wishing to switch out their fossil-fuel powered heating systems to low carbon alternatives. 

To access the incentive contractors will need to be approved by the Contractor Quality Scheme.

“We are really well placed to support the Government of Jersey with the rollout of a quality assurance scheme to support the low carbon heating rollout. This scheme will drive high-quality low carbon heating installations, provide consumer confidence and support increasing the number of installers with green skills.”

Ian Rippin, CEO

Scheme Pilot

Over the next few months, contractors going through approval under the Contractor Quality Scheme will complete work at a number of pre-chosen pilot properties to demonstrate that they meet the required quality standards and customer service.
