Our team includes experts in fuel poverty, resource efficiency in organisations, community renewables and end-to-end energy efficiency behaviour change.
Our Affordable Warmth team offers a full range of fuel poverty services. Funded by the Scottish Government, we have been running Home Energy Scotland advice centres in South East Scotland and Highlands and Islands on behalf of Energy Saving Trust since 2008. We deliver the full range of Scottish Government Home Energy Efficiency Programmes in these areas: Affordable Warmth, Energy Assistance and, under separate contract, Area Based Schemes which we operate in direct partnership with six local authorities.
We also work on behalf of Energy Saving Trust, to help organisations save energy, reduce waste and lower transport and travel costs. This includes providing advice about the kind of financial assistance might be available.
We are a partner in the Local Energy Scotland consortium which delivers the Scottish Government’s Community and Renewable Energy Scheme (CARES).
Local Energy Scotland helps communities and rural businesses develop and fund renewable energy schemes. It can also support groups who wish to maximise the impact of community benefit funds from commercial renewable energy developments.
We draw on the latest behaviour change theory, including the Scottish Government’s ISM model (Individual, Social and Material) to offer full behaviour change support, from programme design and development, to project delivery and management, and monitoring and evaluation.
"Changeworks' advice is always easy to follow and practical, so clients are able to implement what they have been shown and/or told. I often get positive feedback from people saying they now feel warmer and more confident about their bills."
