National success for energy efficiency team

Recognition for tackling fuel poverty

Repairs and investment

After our win and the award of Scotland's Energy Efficiency Council of the year, we were entered into the national finals and finished runner-up - second top council in the United Kingdom, a great achievement for our energy team.

We were commended for the impact we've had across our communities tackling fuel poverty; one of the key issues that set us apart. Our work in rolling out innovative and exciting projects, including installing insulation to reduce heating bills for tenants and residents while reducing our carbon footprint and boosting the local economy by supporting locally based suppliers and providing jobs for local people, was also recognised.

Convener of Communities and Housing, Councillor Heather Brannan-McVey, said: "I'm delighted that our energy efficiency team and the council's programme of measures to tackle fuel poverty and promote energy efficiency, have been recognised at this national level.

"We're working hard to improve the lives of our residents by providing warm and comfortable homes while positively impacting on the local environment.

"Well done to everyone involved in delivering this accolade. We'll continue to roll out our ambitious plans to make North Lanarkshire the place to Live, Learn, Work, Invest and Visit."

Procast, one of our partners involved in delivering these projects, nominated us for the national award following our Scottish Success.

Procast also picked up first prize and was named UK winner for fabric and insulation installer and used North Lanarkshire Council's project as an example as part of our nomination.
