Author: Helena Vidalic

The association Qualit´EnR was established in 2006 as an initiative of five national professional organisations in order to promote quality installations in the field of solar thermal energy, photovoltaic, biomass as well as heat pumps and geothermal probes. The association was established for private households willing to install a renewable energy plant, with the aim to ensure them a quality installation.


Upon acceptation of their application, professional installers (employees or entrepreneurs) of renewable energy plants may receive a training in the following fields:

  • Solar thermal (solar water heaters, collective solar systems for the production of sanitary hot water and combined solar plants)
  • Photovoltaic (integrated and other PV systems)
  • Biomass (wood-burning fireplace inserts, stoves as well as wood-fueled boilers)
  • Heat pumps (geothermal and aerothermal heat pumps)
  • Geothermal probes
  • Storage water heater
