Trent & Dove Housing and Kensa Heat Pumps are holding a one off event for housing associations looking to combat fuel poverty, at Burton’s Pirelli Stadium on 11 June.

The companies will present their recent retrofit heating upgrade programme which saw the replacement of electric night storage heaters with GSHPs in 133 rural homes.

The free event is also being supported by J. Tomlinson, Encraft, GeoDrill, the Carbon Savings Alliance and the National Housing Federation, with a keynote speech from NHF chairman Lord Taylor of Goss Moor.

Steve Grocock, property director at Trent & Dove Housing, said: “We have achieved an outcome that many housing associations dream of: halved tenant energy bills, halved C02 emissions, improved tenant health and wellbeing, and £2.3m of income through the ECO and RHI to offset our £1.8m investment.

“Our event on 11 June will share exactly how we did this with our peers, so that they can take forward the benefits of our scheme throughout their stock, transforming the lives of their tenants and providing a significant return to the social housing provider.”
