Nest annual report 2012-13
What is Nest?
The Nest Scheme targets fuel poor households and offers a wide range of measures to help them. It also provides advice and support to help householders reduce their fuel bills.
Nest home energy improvement packages are designed for individual properties, so there is no standard package of measures. A package can include measures such as:
- a new boiler
- central heating system
- loft insulation
- cavity wall insulation
- newer technologies like air source heat pumps and external wall insulation.
What has Nest achieved during 2012-13?
In its second year Nest has exceeded its targets and helped over 21,500 households. This is an increase of 6,800 on the first year of the programme.
Within this 21,500, nearly 5,000 households have received a package of free home energy improvements. These energy improvements are estimated to save the householders on average around £500 per year. This will make a real difference to householders in managing increasing energy bills.
Nest has supported over 200 installer jobs in small and medium businesses in Wales. It has also created 25 new jobs, training and work experience placements.
