Are you a social housing provider looking for support to improve the energy efficiency of your housing stock? We can help.
The Energy Efficiency Standard for Social Housing (EESSH) requires social housing providers to achieve SAP rating targets for specified house types by 2020, with new targets being set up to 2050.
To achieve these targets you may need to plan improvement programmes, identify funding support and overcome barriers, such as when owner occupiers block works.
Energy Saving Trust can support you through the following:
