Home Energy Conservation Act and Affordable Warmth

As a Home Energy Conservation Authority, South Gloucestershire Council is required under the Home Energy Conservation Act (HECA) to report to government on issues relating to improving energy efficiency in residential accommodation.

We work closely with the district authorities within Gloucestershire and other local partners. As a consortium of local authorities we have planned locally how we intend to work towards improving energy efficiency across housing within our updated Affordable Warmth Strategy.

The affordable warmth strategy spans the next fives years with a rolling action plan, it is intended that the action plan will be updated on a yearly basis and progress will be published every two years inline with requirements under HECA.

We have produced a report detailing the achievements concerning home energy efficiency and affordable warmth over the past two years and outlining future plans and ongoing projects taking place within South Gloucestershire.
