Kirklees Warm Zone

Kirklees Warm Zone


YES Energy Solutions managed and delivered the award winning home insulation scheme - Kirklees Warm Zone on behalf of Kirklees Council from 2007 - 2010.

The 3 year £20 Million project was at the time the largest domestic insulation scheme in the UK and offered every private residence in Kirklees free cavity wall and loft insulation.

Over 170,000 households were targeted saving approximately 55,000 tonnes of CO2 across the area.

Kirklees Warm Zone offered free insulation to private residents regardless of their householder income, circumstances or property size.  

Four energy saving light bulbs, a carbon monoxide detector and a home energy report was sent out to every home on request.

The project worked closely with other Kirklees services and helped refer people for free benefit and debt advice, fire safety checks, water conservation advice and support for carers.

YES Energy Solutions was responsible for marketing the project, caring out all the home assessments and managing the schemes contractors.

  • 133,746 energy assessments were carried out
  • 111,394 homes were referred for a technical survey
  • 51,155 households had energy saving measures installed
  • 42,999 properties received free loft insulation and 21,473 had cavity wall insulation installed

Not only did Kirklees Warm Zone help reduce fuel poverty levels across the area, but won ‘Best Local Authority Sustainable Energy Scheme in the UK’ at the prestigious Ashden Awards in 2009.
