DECC awards first £19.5m in Green Deal funding for community projects

As part of his speech to the Ecobuild 2014 conference, Secretary of State Edward Davey has mentioned that six projects have been awarded £19.5 million in total as part of the Green Deal Communities scheme.

As Mr. Davey pointed out during his speech, the government received 64 Green Deal Communities bids from Local Authorities hoping to accesses the extended fund of £80m. The first six of these have been approved.

These projects are in Cambridgeshire, Ashfield, Suffolk, Peterborough, Haringey & Bracknell Forest, and together represent a total £19.5m to deliver over 5,500 Green Deal Plans to over 7,000 households.

Further projects are being assessed and the DECC will announce the next tranche of successful projects shortly.

Implementing extensive energy saving measures designed to reduce energy bills is something every home owner should seriously consider, and this is specifically where HeatingSave could put its extensive experience to very good use.

Building Energy Management Systems are capable of delivering extensive monitoring and control options, compared to basic controls. They typically employ data from a variety of sources (boiler flow and return sensors, internal and external temperature sensors, occupancy sensors, humidity sensors, etc.), and enable the perfect optimization of a building’s boiler-based central heating system.

HeatingSave is also approved to work and save fuel within the Energy Technology List, which is managed by the Carbon Trust on behalf of the Government. It is also approved by the Department of Energy & Climate Change and the Energy Savings Trust and was specified by the Building Research Establishment for the energy efficient homes retro-fit program, called The Greenhouse Project.

Last, but certainly not least, it’s important to mention that HeatingSave is a component part of the Government’s Green Deal program.
