Following our announcement of E.ON’s Awards sponsorship (see our story ‘E.ON launches Empty Homes Awards season’) the company has provided more details of its new partnership project to tackle empty homes..
Most people will probably be familiar with E.ON as an Energy supplier, but it is proving itself to be much more than that. E.ON describes itself as
‘a national community focused service provider, working with Local Authorities, Housing Associations, surveyors, developers, contractors, community groups and residents on many different housing projects across the UK to drive real change.'
Josh Williams, E.ON’s Empty Homes Manager, explains how this experience has fed through into its ‘Empty Home Solutions’ scheme:
Through these projects, E.ON has seen first-hand the impact empty homes have on the local community and as a result has been working closely with a number of Local Authorities over the past year to develop a unique proposition and framework which delivers a very low risk solution to the Local Authorities.
