GRE Energy Training’s owner, Steve Andrews and Trainer, Dean Wagstaff recently welcomed BPEC’s CEO, Neil Collishaw and Business Area Manager, Mally Butters to its impressive training and workshop facilities.

Based in Chesterfield, GRE Energy has a long-standing and successful partnership with BPEC, delivering specialist training for BPEC’s Renewable Energy, Solar PV, Plumbing and Heating courses.

The purpose of the visit was to discuss GRE Energy’s requirements and how BPEC can support them, as well as sharing BPEC’s plans for future improvements and enhanced customer care. Delivering high quality service is a shared value for both organisations.

“GRE Energy’s cutting-edge facilities offer a great learning environment, and it was especially interesting to learn about the added value they provide to their learners,” said Neil Collishaw. “I was particularly impressed with their renewable energy provision, so it comes as no surprise that they are one of BPEC’s top UK renewable energy training centres.”

GRE Energy’s renowned renewable energy expertise means that BPEC works collaboratively with them on the development of new training materials in this specialist area.

Despite being extremely busy, the centre intends to expand its offerings into gas training and assessment and is consequently planning to recruit additional trainers to add to their team of expert delivery staff.

“It was great to see Neil and Mally again and to hear about BPEC’s plans to support us even further,” Steve Andrews, GRE Energy added. “We’re looking forward to further enhancing our successful partnership as we continue to grow and expand our services portfolio.”
