Wasted heat 'added £500 million' to household energy bills
Derby, Leicester and Nottingham City Councils have come to together to work on energy efficiency retrofitting programmes.
The local authorities' housing teams, ALMOs and local registered social landlords (RSLs) are collaborating to try and optimise regional outcomes.
Procurement is already underway for Official Journal of the European Union (OJEU) compliant funding and delivery frameworks which will help councils and social housing providers across the East Midlands deliver retrofit works.
The 'three cities' collaboration expects to generate investment in energy efficiency across the region of more than £100m, and aims to help all councils and housing providers across the East Midlands achieve best value, regardless of their size and buying power.
