Ridgewater Energy Ltd
Ridgewater Energy have a knowledge base built up over the last 20 years in the energy efficiency field, and our project management of domestic sector projects is second to none.
Our team have won multiple awards for their work in the private rented sector through their previous project delivery experience and have engaged with not only private tenants and landlords, but with owner occupiers, including park home residents and with the social housing sector too.
We know what works and how to engage with those hard to reach sectors, and how to keep up to date with industry developments so we can stay ahead of the curve. We then utilise that skill set to deliver innovative and effective project models and ways of financing them.
Park Homes Projects
Residential park homes have been widely ignored under most Government and Utility company funded initiatives over the last 25 years.
When work has gone ahead under some schemes, it can be difficult to find a good delivery agent who understands the client’s needs, and an installer to provide a fairly priced and properly recognised and accredited insulation system, along with good quality workmanship.
That’s where Ridgewater Energy come in with their experience in overseeing the installation of insulation and heating to over 100 park home properties.
With the regulations on private landlords becoming more stringent under the ‘Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards’ the conditions are right to develop projects that assist private landlords in having a trusted route for energy efficiency upgrades to their properties so they are not in danger of falling foul of the regulations.
Under a recent report undertaken by Sheffield Hallam University, private tenants often do not get a chance to consider the energy performance of a property before they move in, so it is crucial that Local Authorities engage with this agenda now, so that all private rented properties are cost effective to run and living conditions are warm and healthy.
Ridgewater Energy can draw on years of experience in running just these kinds of projects.
Energy Advice Projects
Ridgewater Energy have fully trained and experienced energy advisors, who are City and Guilds Energy Awareness and Renewable Energy in the Home trained. In addition, we have trained Domestic Energy Assessors who are also experienced in surveying homes for insulation.
We currently help deliver projects that include home visits, delivering energy advice and small energy efficiency measures such as LED lightbulbs, radiator panels and power saving plugs across Dorset and Devon to qualifying homes.
