Our very own Sharon Lashley of Enviro UK Consultants Ltd has won the North East Energy Efficiency Champion of the Year 2016 at the Energy Efficiency and Retrofit Awards in Newcastle. This award recognises Sharon’s contribution to the community, business and energy sector here in the North East and in particular her work with community groups in accessing renewable energy, energy efficiency measures and more importantly bringing about improvements and savings to their energy bills.
The Energy Efficiency measures introduced by the Government following the Energy Act 2013, included the Energy Company Obligations (ECO) Scheme, the Green Deal Finance Initiative, and the Renewable Heat Incentive (RHI). These measures together help homeowners reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty and reduce Carbon emissions.
The aim of the Energy Efficiency & Retrofit Awards is to provide public recognition for the excellent work the Energy Efficiency sector is doing in implementing these schemes. And to help encourage best practice within the Energy Industry as it works to improve UK housing stock.
“I am delighted to win this award as it not only recognises the work we do on a daily basis helping communities, businesses and individuals with their energy efficiency needs, but it also makes me feel proud to be part of a thriving sector in the North East. There are some fantastic projects happening in our region and I’m proud to be contributing to this great work”.
