Press Release

With energy costs rising, it’s more important than ever that the public and private sectors come together to make the UK’s homes warmer and more energy efficient. “Using Equans experience to support Rotherham Council’s zero-carbon ambitions has been great. Our site team worked incredibly hard to ensure the project was completed in time for the Government funding deadline.
Sean Corcoran Regional Director at Equans UK & Ireland
I’m glad we have been able to make this investment in The Lanes for its residents - the improvements will have a real impact in making their homes more comfortable and cutting heating bills. Given the recent increase in energy prices, this will be even more vital this coming winter. “It’s good news in terms of meeting our borough’s environmental targets as heating homes is one of the biggest sources to domestic carbon emissions. “The Council has recently applied to the Government’s Social Housing Decarbonisation Fund in a bid to improve the energy performance of more council homes. We recognise that making all Council properties energy efficient is a huge task and we hope the Government will support this work by releasing further funds without delay.
