British Research Establishment (BRE) has developed an energy assessment tool to support energy efficiencies in care homes.
The site also provides guidance on ways to fund and procure energy efficiency improvements as well as information on how to find suppliers and contractors.
As well as the tool, care homes can find:
- national and local finance initiatives and funding options available to assist with upgrading your care home
- information on commissioning and purchasing energy efficiency upgrades
- advice and information to maximise professional advice, products and installers
- information on energy efficiency standards, building regulations and planning.
The September/October issue of Care Home Management magazine will also look at energy & utilities, with a strong focus on sustainability. Email the editor to be first to receive our digital issue and newsletters, or sign up to receive the print issue.
