Lincolnshire Affordable Warmth Strategy

Lincolnshire Affordable Warmth Strategy seeks to support local authorities to provide affordable warmth for households.

This will be done by developing actions and engaging partners to eradicate fuel poverty and to support a reduction in carbon emissions from housing stock.

The strategy covers the period 2010 - 2016 but is currently being revised. In association with the strategy the Home Energy Lincs Partnership (HELP) can assist private sector households to access information on the installation of cavity wall and loft insulation.  To discuss initiatives that are currently available, please contact the Energy Saving Trust on  0300 123 1234.

The Home Energy Lincs Partnership (HELP) includes the seven district councils and the County Council and consists of officers who are involved with the domestic energy efficiency and/or the wider climate change agenda. Working together, the partnership allows us to offer a more consistent approach to delivering affordable warmth and domestic energy efficiency to Lincolnshire residents.

HELP focuses its attentions on schemes and projects that promote and improve domestic energy efficiency and co-ordinates its actions with the wider climate change agenda.

Home Energy Conservation Act

The Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) has recently been amended and now requires local authorities to submit a HECA "progress report" to the Department for Energy and Climate Change (DECC) every two years.  A copy of the report is available to download below.
