ALEO London regional update for ALEO National Executive meeting - October 2016

Post by ALEO Admin » Thu Nov 03, 2016 10:50 am

- provided by Martin O'Brien, Chair of ALEO London, for the ALEO Executive meeting held on 13 October 2016.

Details of any other events held and/or forthcoming:

A sub-regional meeting was held on 18 October. There were 25 attendees. The agenda included:
• London Members survey
• Public health evaluation (with a presentation from Camden and Islington Public Health)
• Smart meters (with presentations from Smart Energy GB and Thames Water)

Details of any current projects:

Groundwork’s redress-funded WARMTH scheme is delivering 2,600 home visits in 2016 across 11 local authority areas: Camden; Ealing; Greenwich; Hammersmith and Fulham; Haringey; Hounslow; Kensington & Chelsea; Lewisham; Sutton; Tower Hamlets; Waltham Forest.

Waltham Forest are developing a heat network for a large regeneration site, and currently at the stage of approving design and looking at metering and billing.
Islington have just launched our carbon offset fund, which takes money from developers and invests it in high rise EWI, our Warmth on Prescription programme and our district heating programmes.

Ealing are evaluating our fuel poverty project with a view to re-tendering early next year. We are working with British Gas on HHCRO and would welcome feedback from other local authorities on their experience of the same.
Harrow’s Warm Homes Healthy People is funded by Public Health until March 2017 although a restructure has now cut the officer resource leading the project.
Lambeth are awaiting the outcome of the ECO consultation so that we can put a new fuel poverty strategy in place.

Kensington and Chelsea’s Healthier Homes fuel poverty scheme is running again this winter.

Lewisham has funding from Smart Energy GB towards outreach on smart meters. Lewisham is also carrying out an Eaga-funded research project with SE2 looking at the cost effectiveness of referral routes.

Camden’s energy efficiency programmes include our ongoing insulation programme of council stock properties, cross tenure Well and Warm home visit service, energy efficiency grants for low income private sector residents and also our Green Camden Helpline and WISH+ health and wellbeing referral hub. Camden are also carrying out additional comms in our designated ‘warm home zones’ - areas which have high levels of poor health, inefficient housing and low income using IMD, (anonymised) Housing Benefit and EPC data.

Any other comments, e.g. issues or barriers:

Members of the London ALEO committee are following up with the Greater London Authority following their announcement of a new Fuel Poverty Strategy for London.
