Warm Up Bristol – local installers event!


Bristol City Council and Climate Energy are launching the £60m Warm Up Bristol programme to deliver 30,000 refurbishment measures in domestic properties over the next four years. Climate Energy are now looking for local installers and find out more at this free Meet the Buyer event.

Warm Up Bristol will be launched in early September 2014 and is an ambitious scheme to help Bristol households and communities upgrade the energy efficiency of their homes through the recent Green Deal Communities fund and Energy Company Obligation (ECO). There will also be a separate scheme targeting the private rental sector in the City of Bristol, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire region.

With a target of 30,000 measures to be installed within four years this scheme represents a great opportunity for installers. Climate Energy, Warm Up Bristol’s Green Deal Provider, will be delivering the scheme and using a wholly SME supply chain.

At the current time Climate Energy are particularly looking to work alongside solid wall insulation, loft and cavity insulation, boiler and glazing contractors. However they are also interested in speaking to Green Deal Assessors to perform assessments over the coming months and a range of other businesses who install renewable or energy efficient technologies and would like to move into the retrofit sector.

This meet the buyer session will give you the opportunity to hear about Warm Up Bristol and from Climate Energy and Bristol City Council. Most importantly it will give you plenty of opportunity to discuss how you might get involved and benefit from this initiative.

This event is particularly aimed at, but not limited to:

  • Installers of energy efficiency insulation products
  • Plumbing and heating engineers
  • Glazing contractors
  • Green Deal Assessors
  • Renewable energy installers
