have worked with a wide range of housing and service providers across the UK. Some national and some local, but we have helped all of them develop deliverable solutions to complex
issues. Below are just a few examples of the people we have worked with and a flavour of the work we are doing.
We have been working on wide range of projects with clients including strategy and business development, stock assessment, specification development, customer relations, renewable energy and energy supply. All of them have been with the purpose of using energy and environmental action to reduce costs or increasing income.
Communal heating can deliver great service and great value for customers and landlords and it has significant potential in the future. There are new opportunities that are now available which can generate new investment and manage long term costs for landlord and customer. We are working with clients to develop take full advantage of these opportunities and to create the long term solutions which will help successful homes stay that way.
Energy is now the second biggest cost for many households and with pressures on incomes, many landlords are looking at how they can get a better deal for their customers, as well as reduce operational costs and potentially generate new revenues that can be used to improve services. We are working with landlords across the UK to develop a new approach to energy supply for their customers that will deliver a range of benefits and help put them back in control of an increasing cost.
Smart meters offer real beenfits for landlords and customers including better voids management, greater payment and tariff flexibility, energy saving and management data. They are the next generation of gas and electricity meters and they offer a range of intelligent functions. This includes telling you how much energy is being used through an In Home Display (IHD). They can also communicate directly with an Energy Supplier which means that no one will need to come and read the meter.
We are working with landlords, contractors and energy companie on developing new ways to deliver the smart meter benefits but ensuring that landlords can manage their role out and share in the management advantages they bring.
Electric Heating Solutions
Electric heating has often been installed for the right reasons, but can lead to higher costs and increased customer complaints, particularly as energy costs rise. The solutions are not always the obvious ones, but we have helped clients find answers that helps customers and improve service delivery.
Metering and Billing
The Energy Efficiency Directive went live in June 2014 and will require all suitable homes to have individual metering and billing by 2016. This should mean that customers have greater control over their energy costs, but it will mean landlords will have to take some key steps to make this happen, as well as have to report on what they are doing as many will have now become Heat Network Operators. We are working with a range of housing providers, as well as the National Housing Federation and the Department of Energy and Climate change to ensure we all get the best outcomes – for customers and landlords.
