Amid growing fuel poverty numbers and its impact on employee morale, energy experts Residential Energy Services (RES) have successfully launched the new Workplace Energy Advice programme.

Sponsored by The Department of Energy Security & Net Zero and Midlands Net Zero Hub, this programme is designed to provide flexible employee access to energy support, to help improve energy use both at work and at home.

This programme is a fully funded initiative, providing free, flexible access to energy advice in the manufacturing, production and retail sectors, or anywhere a large workforce may struggle to gain access to community advice, due to unsociable shift patterns, or limited access to technology and resources.

The advice service is also tailored to individual businesses and employee work patterns, to eliminate the cost of removing employees from the shop floor. “Drop-in” workshops and consultations, or pop-up services in communal areas are designed to blend seamlessly with the working day.

The programme provides guidance on how to save energy and reduce waste, an overview of energy saving measures such as insulation and air source heat pumps, followed by one to one sessions to check funding eligibility, EPC’s and answer any queries the employee may have on how to make their home more energy efficient.

“This unique service from RES empowers employers to provide tangible guidance and support to employees to drive forward their commitment to sustainability”
