Energy Saving Trust delivers the marketing, customer engagement and telephone advice service for the Welsh Government’s Nest scheme which aims to combat fuel poverty in Wales.
The Nest scheme offers a range of advice and support on energy efficiency, money management, energy tariffs and benefit entitlement checks to households across Wales. A team of partnership development managers works with third sector organisations, community networks and local authorities to reach the most vulnerable people at risk of fuel poverty.
The programme also offers householders in receipt of a means tested benefit and living in the most energy inefficient homes a range of improvement measures to help heat their homes more efficiently and save them money on their energy bills.
Energy Saving Trust has been working as a material contractor to British Gas to deliver the Nest Scheme since 2011. The scheme has exceeded the Welsh Government’s expectations and supported thousands of households in Wales. More information, including the scheme’s annual reports, can be found on the Nest website.
