Projects delivered by Alan Caldwell Associates

Street-by-Street Energy Audit and Insulation Project

This national pilot project under the Government’s Climate Challenge Fund covers three Perthshire communities looking to reduce their carbon footprint.

Alan Caldwell Associates has been appointed to co-ordinate and publish good practice guidance this pilot project in Alyth, Comrie and Letham (in Perth).

The project will see a methodical, street-by-street approach to energy efficiency in homes and community buildings in these three communities.  Local Energy Awareness Advisors have been employed and trained to undertake survey work and liaise with householders.  After completing a ‘Home Energy Questionnaire’ each household receives a full report on the energy saving measures they might adopt.  These could range from loft insulation to draft proofing and room thermostats.

The Advisors can help people obtain grant funding and the overall project has organised for a preferred contractor to undertake the work.  When carrying out the home visits the Energy Advisors can also discuss other energy efficiency measures with householders including travel options and micro renewables (for example).
