Retrofit Partnership to Host Green Deal Summit

16th October, 2012

Birmingham Energy Savers (BES) and Carillion Energy Services (CES) will be hosting the Green Deal Summit on 30 October – 1 November 2012 following the announcement of its energy efficient partnership on the 8 October. CES are now looking for partners to deliver this massive Green Deal Retrofit programme and delegates will be able to learn more about the pioneering BES scheme, supply chain opportunities and what it will take to get involved at the Summit.

"Birmingham is really pleased and excited to be hosting the UK's first Retro-fit Show and Green Deal Summit at the NEC. For too long not enough attention has been paid to improving the energy efficiency of the UK's buildings and provide better homes to live in which don't cost the earth to run. With energy prices still rising we must make it easier to retrofit homes.” said Sandy Taylor, Head of Sustainability at Birmingham City Council.

“Birmingham is leading the way with our Birmingham Energy Savers programme and our new delivery partner Carillion Energy Services. Our £1.5 billion programme shows the value to the supply chain, to local jobs, and to householders from energy efficiency. We are looking forward to showcasing our programme at the Green Deal Summit."

Carillion Energy Services was named as the preferred bidder for the BES scheme, which will see up to 60,000 households across the city being given an affordable way of have their properties improved fitted with energy efficiency measures such as insulation and new boilers by 2020.

Taking place at the NEC, Birmingham from Tuesday 30th October – Thursday 1st November 2012, the Green Deal Summit brings together leaders from across the value chain, from clients to installers to address key issues such as finance, generating demand, ensuring high standards of workmanship and achieving affordable technological solutions. The Summit is co-located within the UK’s only dedicated national retrofit exhibition – Retro Expo.
