Energy Projects Plus – fully funded training, summer energy help and other news

May 26, 2022 | News, Newsletter

Smart Meter training for frontline workers

EPP has received funding from Smart Energy GB to deliver a project promoting the smart meter rollout and encouraging as many residents as possible to take up the offer of a smart meter for their home.

Our Smart Energy GB in Communities project is focussed on engaging with older residents aged 65+. Between now and the end of September, we’re getting out and about, attending community events with our Energy Efficiency advice stall. We’re also delivering short briefing sessions, either in-person, or via Zoom/Teams to frontline workers who themselves engage with older residents. These sessions will cover the 4 solutions to fuel poverty, with a link to using Smart Meters to assist in monitoring “energy efficient behaviour at home”.

If you have any community events you’d like us to attend, contact Katie and she’ll check the diary for you: [email protected]

If your team would like to receive one of our briefing sessions, please get in touch with Melanie: [email protected]
