YES Energy Solutions bring home national award Oct 01, 2019
We were named winners of Project Management Company of the Year at the National Energy Efficiency Awards on Friday (27th September) in Birmingham.
The award recognised our management of multiple energy
efficiency schemes that provide funding for vulnerable customers in fuel
poverty for the installation of A-rated boilers and insulation.
Last year we delivered 33 schemes on behalf of a range of
organisations which include councils, housing associations and charities that
span Great Britain.
Throughout last year the company improved the warmth and comfort
of 5,181 homes which made savings on energy bills that total over £58 million.
The projects recognised with the award include the Better
Homes Yorkshire scheme, the Connecting Homes for Health scheme in Durham, and
the North Yorkshire County Council Warm Homes Fund.
Katie Baker, YES Energy Solutions Head of Operations, achieved
second place in the Business Development Manager.
In addition, our project with Amey and the Ministry of Defence
took third place in the highly contested Insulation and Fabric Project
category, and we were highly commended as Funding Providers of the Year.
