The network has been building a supply chain of installers, ready to provide energy-efficiency measures, renewable energy and low carbon heating for government-funded retrofit programmes.
These schemes will deliver energy-saving upgrades and low carbon heating to homes in England, meaning tens of thousands more households nationally will be more energy efficient. It is funded by the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and delivered via local authorities, including East Herts.
Local authorities source installers for retrofit work from the Greater South East Net Zero Hub’s Dynamic Purchasing System (DPS) which is suitable for all PAS 2030:2019, MCS and Trustmark registered businesses, whether large or small.
Councillor Graham McAndrew, Executive Member for Environmental Sustainability, said: “This is a win-win for local installers, which is why we want to see more East Herts businesses on the system bidding for work. They will play an important role in helping our region tackle climate change all whilst giving their business and our economy locally a boost.”
