Services for Local Authorities

Marches Energy Agency works with Local Authorities across the Midlands helping them to meet their obligations and aspirations for carbon reduction and healthy, resilient residents.

We have a small team of Project Managers and volunteers who are knowledgeable, experienced and genuinely interested in finding solutions for often unique and complex problems.

We are able to respond flexibly and creatively to local, national and European affordable warmth, energy policy and funding changes.  We can help you to understand those changes, develop ideas, submit bids and run successful projects.

At the heart of what we do is our comprehensive DOMESTIC ENERGY SERVICE which offers a programme of free, impartial advice to householders; training of intermediaries and engagement with communities with the aim of helping them to save money; improve their comfort; reduce the liklihood of cold related ill health,stimulate local economic activity and  reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

We also run a successful CLIMATE CHANGE COMMUNICATIONS SERVICE which raises awareness about climate change and encourages individuals to take positive steps towards a low carbon lifestyle.

Our creativity allows us to respond to one off opportunities and challenges.  In 2014-15 these included: obtaining funding for and co-ordinating a GREEN OPEN HOMES event; running a SMALL GRANTS POT for low cost energy efficient measures; delivering a range of training and advice under DECC's BIG ENERGY SAVING NETWORK; and running a RESILIENT COMMUNITIES funding programme.
