Working for Warm, Dry Homes
Energy Action Scotland (EAS) campaigns for an end to fuel poverty in Scotland and is the only national charity with this sole remit.
EAS aims to develop and promote effective solutions to the problem of cold, damp and expensive to heat homes.
The website has been designed and developed to allow diverse users the ability to easily source policy, research, press and project materials on the above.
Through the site we will keep you up to date with training, current issues, events and news.
Energy Efficiency, Fuel Poverty and Sustaining Tenancies in the Private Rented Sector
As the number of new home-owners declines resulting in increasing numbers of people living in rented accommodation, EAS will be hosting a breakthrough conference in Glasgow which will focus on the future regulation of energy efficiency in private rented sector (PRS) homes across Scotland.
The event is for PRS landlords, whether they are owners of one or of multiple properties, to introduce and facilitate their engagement with national and local services delivering energy efficiency measures that will both improve the EPC rating and provide warm, dry homes for many tenants in the sector. The event will also support wider awareness of those services providing advice and education, raising awareness of wise energy use in the home which is key to achieving good energy habits and tackling a key contributor to fuel poverty, which causes misery and ill health for a quarter of households in Scotland.
