Do you have a strong strategy for meeting your Affordable Warmth targets?
United Sustainable Energy Agency can help you develop, write and implement an Affordable Warmth Strategy which will help you achieve your ambitions.
The process will help you:
We have experience of bringing potential partners together, supporting meetings and facilitating workshops which result in action. Our partners for developing a strategy are usually local Councils, NHS Clusters/Trusts and other active organisations who come into contact with fuel poor residents. These might include the county's Fire & Rescue Service, Housing Associations, Age UK, Citizens Advice Bureaus, and other local organisations.
A strategy document starts with an overview of fuel poverty, examining national targets and initiatives. It investigates the reasons residents find themselves in fuel poverty in today's society, the impacts on health and those groups which are particulary vulnerable.
MAP AREAS OF NEED
We explore the current levels of fuel poverty in the specific area by looking at population structure, housing, the health profile including excess winter deaths, social issues and employment. This builds a profile of the area which can be enhanced by producing a map presented using GIS (Geographical Information System) software.
This details how the strategy aims to tackle fuel poverty tailored to the specific location. This looks at the factors which cause fuel poverty and need addressing, including low income, high energy prices, inefficient homes, hard to treat properties, and difficulties reaching certain groups. A good strategy ensures this plan is regularly reviewed and monitored to check the aims and action objectives are being met.
USEA can help you create a future-proof strategy which takes account of the changing climate we are likely to see.
