The National Energy Efficiency Awards were launched in July 2015 following the changes in Government Energy Efficiency Policy. Previously known as the Green Deal & ECO Awards, these awards were set up in 2014 to help motivate the energy efficiency sector in their delivery of the Green Deal Finance Initiative and Energy Company Obligation Scheme.
The Energy Efficiency measures introduced by the Government following the Energy Act 2013, included the Energy Company Obligations (ECO) Scheme, the Green Deal Finance Initiative, and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). These measures together help homeowners reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and reduce Carbon emissions.
The aim of the Energy Efficiency Awards is to provide public recognition for the excellent work the Energy Efficiency sector is doing in implementing these, and other, energy efficiency schemes. And to help encourage best practice within the Energy Industry as it, works to improve UK housing stock.
Ashfield District Council are finalists in the Landlord/Housing Association of the year for our work to tackle fuel poverty through it's sustainable housing programme, including heating installations and and loft insulation in a number of its properties.
The winners will be announced on 7th September 2018.
