Objective & independent
clearSkies is an objective and independent emissions and energy performance certification scheme for stoves and fireplaces.
Initiated by the industry through the Stove Industry Alliance (SIA), clearSkies is designed to drive the development of cleaner and more efficient appliances and is open to all manufacturers of solid fuel stoves and fireplaces.
The clearSkies Scheme is owned by clearSkies Mark Limited, a new and independent body created to monitor, control and develop the scheme.
The clearSkies Board is made up of industry professionals, including representatives of the SIA, and consultants and academics specialising in air quality and bioenergy.
Kiwa Ltd has been appointed by clearSkies Mark Limited as the independent administrator of the scheme with responsibility for certifying appliances that have been tested by appropriately qualified third party test laboratories to verify their energy performance efficiency and emissions.
