Annual Report charts noteable RECC achievements in 2022

Posted: 7 August, 2023. Written by Virginia Graham

The RECC Annual Report describes the huge body of work RECC carried out in 2022 - the year we emerged from the shadow of COVID 19 and started to get back to ‘the new normal’. 

This was also the year in which the energy crisis saw domestic electricity and gas prices rise dramatically. The effects inevitably turned homeowners to thinking about generating their own heat and power. The result was a record number of installations registered by RECC Members on the MCS (MID) database during the year.

As usual the Annual Report breaks down our activities into sections including: Code Membership, Monitoring Compliance with the Code, Enforcing Compliance with the Code and Consumer Complaints. 


Most notably, in 2022:

  • 3,037 businesses were RECC members of the Code at the end of the year
  • RECC members installed over 108,000 renewable energy generators across the UK
  • 1,675 businesses applied to become a RECC member
  • 1,642 businesses were monitored in line with RECC's Monitoring Strategy
  • 121 members were asked to respond to breaches of RECC's Code and/or Bye-Laws
  • £176,557 was recovered for consumers through RECC's Dispute Resolution Process

Among the other high points of the year:

  • RECC worked closely with Government to ensure that the Boiler Upgrade Scheme was running smoothly and consumers were protected
  • RECC continued to offer Code Members installing solar PV, battery storage and wind only a popular pay-as-you-go membership option
  • RECC streamlined its processes to ensure they were robust and fit-for-purpose in a rapidly-growing sector is gearing up for meeting the Government’s Net Zero targets.
