An innovative partnership including Wales & West Housing has been named as a runner up in the Waterwise Exemplar Project in Wales awards.
In 2011, the Energy Saving Trust, Environment Agency Wales, DwrCymru Welsh Water, Aqualogic, Wales and West Housing and Valleys to Coast Housing partnered on the Housing Association Water Efficiency Pilot Project.
It is first large-scale water efficiency behaviour change and retrofit pilot in Wales.
Between January and July 2011 the project delivered advice to 180 householders on water use and links to energy use, and also included water efficiency retrofit measures. The project is estimated to save around 1700 cubic metres of water, 12 tonnes of CO2 and £7000 on bills per year.
