National Energy Action NI
NEA Introduction to Domestic Energy Efficiency Training

Tue 7th December 2021, Online

NEA NI is offering Free Domestic Energy Efficiency training to frontline workers in housing, health and community and voluntary groups 

NEA are concerned that the ‘perfect storm’ of higher energy prices, reduced incomes, and leaky, inefficient housing could put many households in Northern Ireland at increased risk of fuel poverty this coming winter. As wholesale energy prices continue to rise there is a risk that consumers in Northern Ireland will face further price hikes in the coming months. These increases come at a time when many household budgets are already stretched thin. The winding down of the furlough scheme and the withdrawal of uplifts to Universal Credit will put further stress on many families in Northern Ireland. 

This course aims to make delegates aware of how householders can reduce the impact of the energy price rises by using their energy more efficiently, limiting waste, whilst maintaining a warm and comfortable home.

The course covers:
  • common heating appliances and controls;
  • top tips for reducing energy use;
  • heat loss in the home and how to reduce it;
  • health impacts of living in a cold, damp home;
  • sources of advice and assistance.

The webinar is 2.5 hrs and will be delivered live via Zoom by our expert tutor to small groups to ensure a good level of interaction and support for learners.
