Local Authorities Benefit from Energy Advice

24th June, 2012

Home energy efficiency expert Enact Energy has launched a complete Green Deal package for local authorities. The service is free for councils and allows them to endorse brand literature and proactive marketing campaigns funded by Enact.  Enact will then give access to all the data collected during their own marketing – information will include amount and type of works, customer satisfaction surveys and post installation inspection results to ensure quality is being maintained and complete EPC data.

All work is undertaken via a national network of quality assured installers. Enact manage the customer service from start to finish and control product procurement and warranty management. Since launching in 1996, Enact has partnered with more than 100 local authorities across Britain in energy saving schemes for residents.

Founder and chairman Adrian Wright said: “Having worked with and on behalf of local authorities for more than 16 years, we fully understand how difficult it can be for home energy efficiency campaigns to be properly resourced both in terms of officer time and the financial cost of delivery. We recognise that local authorities like to support local business… So where a local authority has preferred installers in their district, we will happily add them to our network subject to them meeting our minimum standards criteria. We will also be offering a Green Deal Umbrella service for local SMEs and community groups, giving them a simple way to gain access to both Green Deal Finance and ECO funding.”

Newcastle City Council is leading procurement of a delivery partner to establish and run an energy efficiency improvement scheme for a partnership of local authorities in the North-east. Partners Newcastle City Council, Darlington, Durham, Northumberland and South Tyneside will work together to deliver the scheme, with Newcastle acting as ‘anchor’ authority and leading on procuring a delivery partner on behalf of the partnership.

The North-east partnership will seek to deliver energy efficiency measures to between 10,000 and 15,000 homes in the first three years of the scheme but will not get underway until 2013 with the Green Deal due to launch in October 2012. Warm Up North aims to safeguard and create up to 300 jobs in green industries across the North East and create further job opportunities, whilst maintaining decent neighbourhoods and reducing the region’s carbon footprint.

Local authorities or other housing organisations interested in partnering with Enact should contact Enact partnership manager, Jamie Champness: email Jamie.champness@enactenergy.com
