YES Scoops Public Service Excellence Award
YES Scoops Public Service Excellence Award Sep 10, 2017
YES Energy Solutions’ Park Home insulation scheme with North Lincolnshire Council has won a national Public Service Excellence Award.
The project was selected out of 300 entries and eight finalists to win “Best Housing, Regeneration or New Build Initiative” at the 2017 APSE Service Awards.
Representatives from company and North Lincolnshire Council attended the prestigious awards ceremony which was held on the 7th September at the Kings Centre in Oxford.
The award was presented to the team by BBC Breakfast Journalist, Louisa Preston.
The Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) is a respected organisation dedicated to promoting the very best Local Authority schemes that improve and enhance communities throughout the UK. Their Service Awards run every year and highlight outstanding achievements from the public sector.
YES Energy Solutions specialises in working with Local Authorities and developing projects to help residents save energy and money.
Since 2015 we have worked with North Lincolnshire Council to help a series of resident improve the look and feel of their Park Homes (some of the UKs least energy efficient housing stock). The project drew funding from the NEA’s Technical Innovation Fund as well as capital funds from the Council.
Over 50 Park Homes were renovated through fully funded external wall insulation upgrades.
Our scheme has not only improved the thermal values of a series of old and exposed properties, but helped a community of vulnerable residents slash their fuel bills and improve their health and wellbeing.
Duncan McCombie, CEO of YES Energy Solutions explained:
"Reducing fuel poverty and helping people live in homes that they can afford to heat is our number one priority. The North Lincolnshire scheme is a fantastic example of how an effective partnership has helped a series of vulnerable householders take back control of their energy bills.
"Winning an APSE Service Award is a great achievement. It demonstrates that our work with Local Authorities is of the right calibre and that we are not only helping strengthen communities, but helping the Councils we support exceed their social and environmental goals.”
YES Energy Solutions has won four industry awards in the last two years.
We plan to build on this success by connecting to other Council partners and helping more householders save energy and cut their carbon footprint through the latest funding opportunities.
