The Energy Agency is proud to announce that we were shortlisted for the 2014 UK Ashden Outstanding Achievement Award. The award, funded by the Coutts Foundation, is given to organisations who have directly delivered energy and financial savings to households in fuel poverty.

The Energy Agency had a very successful 2012/13. The staff worked hard to provide help and support to householders and businesses in Ayrshire and Dumfries & Galloway. We were also successful in attracting funding from national and local government, utility companies and charitable sources. Click here to read who and how many we helped.
