Energy Saving Trust delivers the marketing, customer engagement and telephone advice service for the Welsh Government’s Nest scheme which aims to combat fuel poverty in Wales.

The Nest scheme offers a range of advice and support on energy efficiency, money management, energy tariffs and benefit entitlement checks to households across Wales. The scheme also offers householders in receipt of a means tested benefit and living in the most energy inefficient homes a range of improvement measures to help heat their homes more efficiently and save them money on their energy bills.

Energy Saving Trust has been working as a material contractor to British Gas to deliver the Nest Scheme since 2011.

More information can be found on the Nest website.

Welsh Government Energy Service

Welsh Government Energy Service looks to support community and public sector organisations in Wales to develop energy efficiency and renewable energy projects that will lower carbon emissions and provide cost savings, income generation and wider community benefits.

Launched in October 2018, the service provides financial and technical support to help public sector and community groups across Wales to develop their own renewable energy schemes.

The service is funded by Welsh Government and delivered by a consortium, led by Energy Saving Trust and Carbon Trust and supported by Local Partnerships. The consortium is made up of Ricardo Energy and Environment, Wales Council for Voluntary Action, Regen, GEP Environmental, Awel Aman Tawe and Ecodyfi.
