Energy Action Scotland delivered a training session last week for local front line staff who work with clients who are at risk of fuel poverty and vulnerable to the health risks of living in a cold home, which is a significant issue in the Western Isles. The session was entitled Stay Warm, Stay Well and had two main aims: 

  • to improve understanding of domestic energy efficiency and the impact of fuel poverty and cold homes on vulnerable, low income households.
  • to raise awareness of schemes, grants and other support mechanisms for energy efficiency improvements, creating an effective means for linking those in need with the help that is available

Tighean Innse Gall (TIG) has won the ‘Installer of the Year’ Award at the Energy Action Scotland Annual Conference and Exhibition 2019. 

They say: "This award is a superb achievement and a great honour for TIG and its staff in recognition of their high quality delivery of energy efficiency works for fuel poor households."
