Programme management

Our programmes are carefully devised and selected to offer comprehensive advice and technical resources

Here you can find out about the packages and services we offer, including information on support and guidance, such as bespoke tools available to help devise your own energy efficiency and sustainability plans and programmes. 

Energy Saving Advice Service (ESAS)

Energy Saving Trust is contracted by the Department of Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) to run a telephone advice service offering impartial energy saving advice to homes and businesses in England and Wales. We continue to run Home Energy Scotland.

The advice service signposts callers to a wide range of organisations that can help install energy-saving measures in their homes and reduce their fuel bills. It is also supporting the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) as these schemes develop.

The telephone number for the Energy Saving Advice Service is 0300 123 1234. The advice provided is free, but calls are charged at the standard national rates.

If you're based in Scotland, you can contact Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282.

Programme design and development

Energy Saving Trust can work with you to design and develop housing refurbishment programmes. We have extensive knowledge of programme delivery and strategy development, alongside the in-depth data we have on housing stock in the UK. We can support you to develop your programme to deliver cost effective methods to save carbon and benefit residents.

Programme broker service

We can act as a broker between utilities and local authorities or registered providers to ensure available funding is targeted in the right areas, and to assist you in increasing uptake of the energy and water saving measures locally. We can help you to broker a deal with utilities which will deliver carbon savings but also meet your other objectives.

Economic impact tool

This tool can assist you in making the business case for refurbishment programmes. The tool calculates the financial savings made, direct sales created, gross value added and jobs created or safeguarded for a given housing refurbishment programme. We can use this information to create a robust economic case for new and/or continued investment in refurbishment programmes.

"Energy Saving Trust provided expert advice and guidance to Wirral Council during the development and delivery of their Warmer Wirral Free Insulation Programme. They provided key insight into the scale and type of measures to target, options for delivery and the likely return on investment. During the delivery they provided Endorsed Advice training to front line staff meeting face-to-face with Wirral residents, and Home Energy Checks to enable important information to be captured on the door step and efficient action to be taken.” Ed Kingsley Principal Officer Home Energy Wirral Metropolitan Borough Council
