Please note that this page contains information and links most relevant for people living in Scotland.
Thank you for joining the Green Homes Network. This webpage is your one-stop-shop to keep you updated on network activities and help you make the most of your membership.
As Scotland takes world-leading strides to become a net-zero society, the network plays a vital role. Homeowners and landlords will be inspired and will benefit from learning about your first-hand experience of installing and living with renewable technologies and energy efficient measures.
Home Energy Scotland is a free and impartial advice service funded by the Scottish Government and managed by Energy Saving Trust. The Green Homes Network forms part of its advice service offering, and its customers regularly use the case studies to get inspired. Home Energy Scotland supports Energy Saving Trust to raise awareness about the network and its advisors process any visit requests received through the site.
About our members
Our members make our network. We have welcomed over 350 members, and 8,148 users read 15,999 case studies in the year 2022-2023.
About your membership
Is your case study up to date? You can find your case study by using your postcode to search the network.
Have you made further improvements to your property, or installed another renewables system? Maybe you have updated data on your energy use or have some great photos you’d be proud to share? The more useful information your case study provides the more helpful your case study is to other homeowners considering installing renewables.
If your case study is out of date or you’d like to add some useful information, please get in touch and we can update it for you.
When you completed your network membership questionnaire, you decided if and how you wanted people to get in touch to find out more about your project.
When someone wants to find out more about your case study, they submit a request form on the website. We pass these requests on to a Home Energy Scotland advisor in your area. The advisor will liaise with you to arrange a suitable date and time to put them in touch.
If you change your mind about being available for enquiries, that’s ok – get in touch and we’ll update your records.
We’ll contact you at the beginning of each calendar year to make sure we’ve got the right contact details for you. We’ll also check if you’re happy with your case study and your level of involvement.
However, if you ever need to update your contact details, or if you have any questions about the network or your case study, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
“It was great to speak to someone who changed from storage heaters to air source [heat pump]. I found out about the savings he is getting and how the system is working. It was a very useful conversation about his experiences and put my mind at rest that I am making the right decision.” Strathclyde and Central visitor
Spotlights on success
We’re grateful to all our network members – sharing your experiences is helping to inspire homeowners across Scotland to make a positive change.
Below are just some examples of the activities our members have supported during the last year or so.
Home Energy Scotland’s Heat Pump Heroes campaign features seven of our network members and aims to raise awareness of heat pumps in Scotland. The campaign featured in the Scottish Government’s Heat in Buildings Strategy when it was published in October 2021.
Network members have featured in online Scottish Government campaigns, an interview with STV about rising energy prices, and a BBC Radio 4 You and Yours feature.
Network members have featured in several publications including The Times, Good Housekeeping, and Landlord Focus.
Some of our members host open days as part of nationwide events, or linked to local groups they are involved with, to showcase their projects.
Rewarding our members
We want to say a huge thank you to our members and reward them for their contributions, and so at the end of each year we’ll enter all those members into a prize draw. Prizes on offer will include shopping vouchers or a magazine subscription. We will also highlight these successes to the wider network, so it’s always worth getting involved! Look out for our emails with details.
