Helping housing
providers meet

Energy efficiency is a hot topic for housing providers these days as more and more legislation and guidelines are introduced by the government.

The aim is to ensure the UK’s housing stock is fit for purpose, energy efficient and safe, providing occupants with homes that they can live affordably, healthily and happily in.

The types of schemes and legislation that we can help organisations fulfil include:

Retrofitting experts

We know that the number, age and current efficiency of the UK’s social housing stock means a significant retrofit operation is needed to meet government targets to be net zero in the UK. Since 2015, we have decarbonised 15,000 homes and decarbonise a further 80 homes every week.

Partnerships in action

Forest of Dean District Council selects Evolve to boost energy efficiency of its office building

Part-funded through a £126,000 Public Sector Decarbonisation Scheme grant, Evolve’s insulation team installed cavity wall insulation to the authority’s Coleford office in April 2022, significantly improving the energy efficiency of the building.

The improvement will generate energy savings of around 22,178kWh per year, and, in turn, many thousands of pounds in heating bills over the lifetime of the building.

79 Two Rivers Housing properties installed with party wall insulation

During October and November 2020, our team of installers, fitted 79 Gloucestershire properties belonging to Two Rivers Housing with party wall insulation. 

The outcome for both the occupants and the housing association was fantastic. It is estimated that the lifetime energy bill savings per property are £1,250, saving occupants a significant amount on their heating bill each year.

Plus, the homes are reported to feel warmer too. For Two Rivers Housing, their properties’ SAP ratings were improved, up to a 5 point increase in some cases. Thirty-one of the properties’ SAP ratings were uplifted enough to move them from an E rating to a D rating.

Mrs Lyons from 2 All Saints Road, a semi-detached bungalow with gas boiler, said:

I found the surveyor and the workmen to be very acceptable, they gave me no problems were nice and friendly and went out of their way to keep the disruption to a minimum. The property feels warmer since the work was done and the noise from my neighbours has slightly reduced too. Overall I am very happy.

Thriving Cardiff community centre switched to solar PV by Evolve

In summer 2023, Evolve was delighted to switch Maes Y Coed Community Centre in Cardiff to solar energy.

The team fitted an array of panels, including battery storage, on the centre’s new roof so that they could benefit from the many benefits of solar energy, including significant savings on their heating bill, essential for the centre to future-proof itself against the rising cost of energy bills
