Ecogee will improve the energy efficiency of 18 homes in Runcorn


Energy and construction specialist Ecogee has won a contract with Halton Housing to install energy efficiency measures at 18 homes in the borough.

Aintree-based Ecogee will work on the 18 flats across three blocks in Runcorn. Halton Housing has got funding for the scheme from an £11m pot of money secured from the Government by Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.

This fund helps social housing providers to tackle fuel poverty, reduce carbon emissions and increase the energy efficiency of homes.

It forms part of Halton Housing’s Destination Grange programme. Ecogee will install new wall insulation, a refurbished roof with solar PV panels and a centralised ventilation system. It will also fit new windows, external doors, enclosed balconies and increased security systems.

Managing director Brendan Helm said: “We’re delighted to have been chosen to work on the retrofit project and to deliver much-needed energy-saving measures to the households of the Grange Estate.

“This will ultimately improve the energy efficiency of their homes and hopefully, reduce their overall energy bills.

“From our headquarters in Liverpool, we have been delivering energy saving measures since our launch back in 2012. We are confident that with the support of our partner Halton Housing, the Grange Estate project will be a great success.”

As energy prices continue to soar, Ecogee has seen a rise in the demand for decarbonisation works to tackle the growing risk of fuel poverty in the North West. The team has been working on hundreds of properties with clients including Sefton Council, Scottish Power, OVO Energy, One Vision Housing and Prima Group.

Georgina Patel, decarbonisation strategic lead at Halton Housing, added: “Securing the grant funding allows us to maximise the energy efficiency measures on these blocks. This will bring benefits to our customers in terms of saving energy and will help Halton Housing to reduce our carbon footprint.”
