YES Energy Solutions delivered the award winning Insulate Hampshire scheme throughout 2012 on behalf of Hampshire County Council and 11 Local and District Councils from across the region.
Scheme In Detail
The scheme was funded by ScottishPower, who input £5.5 million pounds of CERT (Carbon Emissions Reduction Target) funding to provide Hampshire homeowners and private renters with free cavity wall and loft insulation.
Over the course of the scheme more than 18,500 home insulation measures were delivered, saving approximately 9,000 tons of CO2 in the first year alone.
The scheme won a host of industry accolades including a Climate Week Award for 'Best Local Initiative', a Carbon Action Network (CAN) award and was shortlisted by the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) out of 375 applications for their ‘Best Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Initiative’.
YES Energy Solutions was instrumental in developing the programme from what was once a discounted insulation scheme to a free non-means tested initiative available to thousands of Hampshire homeowners and private renters.
Dave Yates, Chair of the Insulate Hampshire partnership was very happy with the schemes progress:
"YES successfully tendered to deliver Insulate Hampshire in 2011 on behalf of all the Hampshire Local Authorities and were responsible for the day-to-day management of the scheme, including marketing and contractor management.
"We established a strong and positive working relationship with the team. They are responsive to any issues and concerns, and are proactive in developing new ideas and proposals for delivery."
Accompanying the main Insulate Hampshire scheme was a community DIY programme which provided Hampshire residents with free rolls of “DIY loft insulation" in partnership with local community groups, colleges and businesses. The Insulate Hampshire team accommodated 33 events across the county giving away enough rolls of loft insulation to cover 31 football pitches.
