Information sheets are now available below on Energy Assessors and the Green Deal.
We’re all spending, on average, more than £1000 per household on energy – for every 1000 households that’s over £1,000,000 per annum. Most of this is lost to our economy, paid out to one of the Big 6 energy companies. We have an opportunity to work together, as a community, to reduce the amount we’re spending. Reducing the amount we’re using in our homes and businesses through energy reduction; and looking at ways we can generate more heat and power locally for community benefit.

Retrofitting properties to make them more energy efficient can be a worthwhile investment. The Government are encouraging householders, in particular, to undertake an assessment of their properties; and gain an understanding of the best energy reduction options.
There are a number of different assessment types. We have prepared an Energy Assessors Information Sheet SWD CEP July 13to provide a better understanding. The Green Deal is one option for financing retrofit work. A Green Deal Information Sheet July 2013 SWDCEP is also available.
A wide range of information is also available from the SEACS (Sustainable Energy across the Common Space) EU project.
