E2020 Awards

YES Energy Solutions’ Heat Pumps for Park Homes project has been nominated for the Worcester Bosch Environment 2020 Awards.

Park HomesOur collaboration with Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council and Paynes Plumbing and Heating has been recognised for its impact on alleviating fuel poverty in Park Homes.

Since November 2015 we have been helping Park Home owners upgrade their home heating systems by transferring over to renewable energy alternatives.

Through the Technical Innovation Fund, YES Energy Solutions secured funding to install up to 30 Air to Air Heat Pumps in Park Homes at Attwood Close – a council owned site close to the town center.

Air to Air Heat Pumps transform air from outside a property into heat – helping residents slash their heating bills.

The Worcester Bosch Environment 2020 Awards celebrate organisations that make an impact in combating Climate Change in local communities. YES Energy Solutions will join a range or organisations, community groups and installers at Stanbrook Abbey Hotel near Malvern on 1st June.

Saving Energy with EWI

The ClarksNorman and Irene Clark from Cleckheaton were delighted with the look and feel of their home since they invested in external solid wall insulation.

‘As soon as I received the leaflet from YES Energy Solutions I rang up straight away and the response was immediate’ explained Norman.

‘Since the wall were done our house feels so much warmer. Our heating’s not on as long and the rooms just feels cosier. We could tell the difference as soon as they put the board on, even before they applied the top coat. It just keeps the heat inside the house.’

‘Our bills have come down to around £69 a month now and that partially down to the wall insulation!’

Green Deal Preparations for Yorkshire Energy Services

Yorkshire Energy Services are collaborating with Stroma Certification to engage UK communities in readiness for the Government’s new Green Deal scheme.

Green Deal launches in October 2012 and aims to help householders and small businesses reduce carbon emissions affordably.  The scheme will provide consumers energy efficient improvements to homes and buildings with no upfront costs, but provide a payment plan that relates to energy bill savings.

Stroma Certification Ltd, is one of the UK’s leading certification providers and has been accepted to participate in the pilot accreditation project for certification of Green Deal Installers (GDI) and Green Deal Advisors (GDA) services – run by the Department of Energy and Climate (DECC).

Due to Yorkshire Energy Services Community Interest Company status, Stroma are keen to develop relations with the organisation and work in partnership to improve communities across the UK.  Stroma Certification are currently developing a training and development programme for Yorkshire Energy Services, and are in the process of delivering the Domestic Energy Assessors (DEAs) and Non Domestic Energy Assessors (NDEA) courses for key staff, which will be followed by Green Deal Advisor training when it becomes available in June.

YES Support Fuel Poverty Awareness Day

Yorkshire Energy Services are encouraging people across the country to insulate their homes and reduce their energy bills in support of Fuel Poverty Awareness Day.

The Huddersfield based Community Interest Company currently runs two council backed insulation schemes, on behalf of Hampshire County Council and most recently Leeds City Council, following on from the success of the Kirklees Warm Zone free insulation scheme.

The Department for Energy and Climate Change suggest that there are still around 10 million lofts (43% of UK homes) which remain unlagged; and 8 million empty cavity walls (42% of households across the UK) that fail to have the current recommended insulation levels.

Go green this valentine’s day

Yorkshire Energy Services are keen to help householders spread their love and save energy this Valentine’s Day. As well as spoiling your home with a warming make-over, you can shower your loved one with gifts that don’t cost the earth.

Here are our top tips to help you save energy and money so you and your loved one can go green on the 14th of Feb.

Turn off to turn on
1. Smooch by candlelight
Switch off those lights, light some candles and create a romantic ambient evening.
2. Snuggle under the duvet
Turn down the thermostat and curl up to watch a romantic film with a loved one.
3. Share a bath or shower
There’s nothing like getting into hot water with someone to kick off a romantic evening. If every couple in the UK shared their showers on Valentine’s Day they could save a collective 160 million litres of water. And by using less hot water you’ll be saving energy too.

Buy recycled paper or sort through old cards to create a personal, one of a kind card. The extra effort shows you really care about your Valentine – and the environment.
5. Homemade treats
Don’t buy cakes or cookies – make them!
6. Dine in
Why not purchase locally sourced food and make an evening of it by cooking together.
