Energy at Home
|LEAD AGENCY:||Bath and North East Somerset Council (Housing Services, Corporate Sustainability, Public Health)|
|OTHER PARTNERS:||Sirona Care and Health, Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE), Eco Residential, WE Care & Repair (WE C&R)|
|PROJECT SUMMARY:||The Energy at Home scheme provides an advice, assessment and energy efficiency installation programme for all Bath and North East Somerset residents. Two contractors deliver it: the Centre for Sustainable Energy (CSE) who manages the advice service, and Eco Residential, the delivery partner. By working closely with health professionals, we target those at risk of fuel poverty and cold related illness to deliver affordable warmth measures.
Eligible households come to Energy at Home through several routes:
The advice service takes customers’ calls, or call them if it is a referral. They provide free advice on all fuel poverty and energy related issues and discuss potentially suitable measures and grants. Individuals and households likely to be eligible will be flagged before referral to housing services and Eco Residential. Eco Residential will arrange an EPC assessment. An environmental health officer (EHO) visits to assess eligibility for the grant or other assistance, and identify and address excess cold and other housing hazards. The EHO will agree with the householder how to proceed, and if eligible, Eco Residential will quote and, after value‐for money checks, they or their sub‐contractors deliver the work. Following installation a second SAP rating will be taken and a further advice visit undertaken by an EHO with appropriate energy efficiency advice training, in order to ensure that households fully benefit from the works delivered.
