The Energy Agency has won first prize for the Best in Scotland category for Large Scale Project of the Year at the Energy Efficiency and Healthy Homes Awards 2017.
The Energy Agency in partnership with the Local Authorities of South Ayrshire, East Ayrshire, Dumfries & Galloway and NHS Ayrshire & Arran, were awarded first prize at the Scotland Regional Energy Efficiency and Healthy Homes Award 2017. The award recognises excellence in large scale projects that help householders reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and reduce carbon emissions. It also recognises excellent customer service and quality workmanship.
The Energy Agency manages the Home Energy Efficiency Programmes for Scotland: Area Based Schemes on behalf of the 3 local authorities and are funded by Scottish Government.
The schemes install solid wall insulation in targeted fuel poor communities with hard to treat homes. In partnership with NHS Ayrshire & Arran, research is taking place into the health impact of these improvements.
The winners were announced at an Annual Dinner in Glasgow on 2nd March 2017 and presented by the category sponsor ‘Area Eco, supporting sustainable communities’
