Hull Warm Zone has won the award for best project in the East Pennine area as part of the recent national Carbon Action Network Awards, highlighting the Warm Zone’s contribution to tackling fuel poverty and reducing carbon emissions in partnership with Hull City Council.
The award noted that “Hull Warm Zone programme managed the delivery of hundreds of Lofts, Cavities and new A-Rated Boilers, which were funded through the citywide ECO Scheme. This has helped 2,713 residents benefit from heating and insulation measures in the most deprived areas of the city. Hull Warm Zone recently managed full ECO Compliance for a 510 property ESWI and Boundary Wall Regeneration Programme. It is estimated that the programme will deliver over 57,000 tonnes of lifetime carbon savings with over £200,000 saved annually from the residents’ heating bills. With these financial savings, residents’ heating bills will become more affordable, thus helping to reduce the number of residents in the area suffering from fuel poverty.”
Warm Zone Regional Manager Tricia Welsh also won the won the Yorkshire Regional Green Deal and ECO Award for Energy Efficiency Champion of the Year 2015 and finished a very credible runner up in the same national award.
