| What does 'Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES)' mean?
New Legislation Private, Rented Sector Energy
Over the last 18 months we have been working with a national Managing Agent to provide a bespoke programme to deliver Minimum Energy Efficiency Standards (MEES) Assessments to their rural homes.This pioneer programme has provided a great insight into their rural housing stock allowing us to develop a robust and efficient delivery mechanism for MEES. The first phase of these assessments has seen over 2500 homes having visits with around 60% of these requiring improvements to meet the minimum rating for Private Sector Homes.
Identified improvements have included insulation, energy efficient lighting, heating upgrades including heating controls, glazing improvements and in some cases renewable energy.
An end-to-end process has been developed which
includes the engagement of Estate / Property Managers and Tenants to ensure the
highest possible access rates also reducing the impact on the engaging partner.
With our Green Deal Advice Organisation, GDAO, completing the MEES assessments
we offer the reassurance of a consistent high-quality service meeting UKs
requirements ensure their landlords meet compliance.
With installations completed by our own in-house teams, based in the North and the South of England, and engagement of our of accredited approved SME’s we offer a local service with benefits to the wider community.With access to grant funding including ECO many improvements will benefit from reduced installation costs. With the Renewable Heat Incentive, recently increased by 33%, and Feed In Tariff, provided at a guaranteed rate for 20 years, renewable energy installations are becoming attractive to more an d more freeholders.
