The awards celebrate those who have made a significant contribution to the UK Energy Saving and Efficiency sector and recognise best practice within the industry.
Shortlisted in the Housing Association of the Year category, Midland Heart have been recognised for their dedication to energy efficiency and their innovative approaches to sustainability, low carbon and positive social value.
Building future standard homes, such as the pioneering Project 80, and participating in landmark energy efficiency projects, such as the Demand Site Response storage heater trial with British Gas, were shining examples of the organisations willingness to explore innovative methods to achieve energy efficiency and improve the affordability of their homes.
This is alongside an ambitious retrofit strategy, which has seen the organisation make domestic and industry-first improvements to their homes for rent, reducing tenant bills while keeping them warm and the lights on in their homes.
Jonny Mobbs, Head of Sustainability at Midland Heart commented:
“I am immensely proud to see Midland Heart shortlisted for Housing Association of the Year at the national awards. This commends the efforts of our dedicated teams to advancing energy efficiency in the sector and their willingness to share learnings with our peers and the industry. Incredibly they are changing the landscape of new builds in the future, approaches to retrofitting homes beyond EPC C 2030 and how we are billed as energy customers to maximise affordability and renewable energy generation.”
The awards are due to take place in Birmingham on Friday 29th September.
