Since the late 1990s, local councils have been required to improve the energy efficiency of housing within their areas.  The seven Northamptonshire district and borough councils decided to work together to make these improvements and formed the Northamptonshire Warm Homes Partnership (NWHP), which is dedicated to improving homes and reducing fuel poverty.  Over the years, the group has undertaken many projects across Northamptonshire in partnership with utility providers, installers, public sector bodies such as the NHS. These have included boiler replacement, renewable energy, insulation schemes and switching programmes.

Northants Warm Homes continues to manage home energy efficiency schemes and to promote the uptake of renewable energy systems such as solar panels and alternative forms of heating.

Energy Company Obligation – Joint Flexible Eligibility Statement of Intent

The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) requires energy suppliers to help households cut their energy bills and reduce carbon emissions by installing energy saving measures. The Government have introduced  a new ‘Flexible Eligibility’ proportion of ECO, which enables local authorities to make declarations determining that certain households meet the eligibility criteria for measures under the Affordable Warmth element of ECO. In order to do so, NWHP has published a Statement of Intent, which can be downloaded here – NWHP ECO Flex SOI Aug 2019.
