Energy price increases
With spiralling household energy costs and the price cap increasing, many households in our district will be struggling.
Home Energy Help scheme
Are you interested in finding out how to make your home more energy efficient, reduce energy bills and carbon emissions but don’t know where to start?
Have you heard the term ‘Retrofit’ when people are talking about how to reduce energy usage and the carbon footprint of their homes but are not sure what it means?
Act on Energy
To help make your home as energy efficient as possible, the Council is working in partnership with Act on Energy which is a local organisation providing free, impartial advice to residents. They advise on all aspects of home energy efficiency, including:
- Grants for insulation through the Energy Company Obligation (ECO) and other schemes
- Switching energy tariffs
- Support with fuel debt and access to hardship funds
If you would like to make enquiries, please contact Act On Energy:
If you are a Council tenant, wanting information on your heating or insulation, please contact the housing team.
Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA)
The Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) requires local authorities to improve the energy efficiency of residential properties to help your home be as energy efficient as possible. Warwick District Council has partnered with Act on Energy which offers free advice and various grants for insulation and boilers and switching energy suppliers.
Energy Company Obligation (ECO 4)
We are currently exploring ECO4 delivery opportunities and will update this page with further information as soon as possible. We are not currently entering into discussions with installers or partners until a local pilot phase has been completed.
Energy efficiency for historic buildings
Buildings from different periods have fundamental differences in how they have been designed to manage heat and moisture, and the skills and materials needed to maintain, repair, and responsibly adapt them. Solutions designed for the 80% of houses built after 1919 may not be appropriate for your home. They can be aesthetically damaging, environmentally ineffective or counter-productive, and in the worst cases cause harm to the health of the occupants.
