TGE Group Announces New Jobs

17th March 2014

Renewable specialist company TGE Group is looking to expand its operations by taking on six new members of staff as the UK’s renewables sector continues to strengthen.  Headquartered in Cheshire, TGE Group already employees 60 members of staff and is currently actively recruiting for new roles within their renewable heating, marketing and administration teams.

The appointments will further strengthen the Group’s Heat Division which has grown significantly to cope with the demand for renewable heating systems following the government’s decision to encourage up-take amongst businesses through its Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI).  The commercial RHI pays a tariff for each unit of heat generated by renewable technologies such as heat pumps, solar thermal or biomass, the domestic RHI begins in Spring 2014.

Rupert Higgin, MD of TGE Group, comments: “We are delighted to be able to offer these new positions on the back of a solid set of performance figures in 2013 and a positive outlook.  The renewables sector continues to perform strongly and we look forward to expanding our workforce in order to cement our position as a key player in the UK’s renewable market.”

The Renewable Heat Incentive is the first of its kind in the world and is expected to make a significant contribution towards the government’s ambition of having 12% of heating coming from renewable sources by 2020.  
In addition, the government also faces legally binding targets of reducing carbon dioxide emissions by 80% by 2050.  Renewable energy is expected to play a large part in reaching this goal with the government committed to producing 20% of its total electricity needs from renewables by 2020.

TGE Group provides renewable energy systems for clients in the commercial, agricultural and public sectors, covering all renewable energy technologies including solar, wind, biomass and heat pumps to help customers reduce energy costs.  For further information on the jobs on offer, visit
