ABOUT HEAT PROJECT
About HEAT Project
The HEAT Project (Home Energy Action Taskforce) is a local authority led service, offering local residents a one-stop-shop for energy advice and access to grants to make their home warmer and reduce their energy bills.
The HEAT Project began in 1997 and since then has led to over 300,000 homes receiving an energy saving upgrade through previous partnerships with 116 local authorities.
How Does the Partnership Work?
The HEAT Project offers local authorities a simple way to signpost householders in their districts to a freephone service, where trained energy advisors will confirm which grants and other assistance may be available to help them stay warmer and have lower energy bills.
The success of the HEAT Project is simple, the service is completely free for local authorities yet brings significant financial and social benefit into the district.
A data sharing agreement lays out the terms of the services to be provided, minimising legal and procurement red tape. As the service is non-exclusive, we are happy to work alongside other services helping customers in the district and, where necessary, make referrals to these services if this provides the best outcome for the customer.
The HEAT Project benefits from the endorsement of the local authority, usually including the use of the logo on any marketing materials, this provides trust for the customers and helps to increase the number of people who will benefit from the service.
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT FROM HEAT PROJECT?
HEAT Project will conduct a wide range of marketing activities to ensure residents are aware of the service and any grants they may be eligible for. HEAT Project especially tries to target those who are most likely to be in fuel poverty. Marketing includes the creation of a website and targeted mail outs to homes/residents who likely meet the grant/s criteria.
