NEA was named as National Green Champion, the top award in the Fuel, Energy and Power category, for good environmental practice. NEA chose to neutralise the carbon dioxide emissions that couldn’t be eliminated by purchasing ‘carbon credits’ in the form of a contribution to the Community Foundation. The Foundation allocates the monies it receives amongst a variety of low-carbon technologies and forestry projects, including affordable warmth programmes for disadvantaged people in the city, such as Newcastle Warm Zone.

Newcastle Warm Zone uses the money it receives as part of the CarbonNeutral programme to fit free energy-efficiency measures into the city’s poorest homes. By installing measures like loft and cavity wall insulation the Warm Zone simultaneously helps to lift households out of fuel poverty while reducing the amount of harmful carbon dioxide emissions they produce.

By the time it winds up in 2008, the Warm Zone aims to have reduced Newcastle’s carbon dioxide emissions by up to 50,000 tonnes each year.

THE PARLIAMENTARY Warm Homes Group is calling for an amendment to the Decent Homes Standard of the Housing Bill as it reaches its final report stages in order to tackle fuel poverty and climate change. 650,000 social sector properties, housing 1.4 million people meet the current Decent Homes Standard but continue to be fuel poor. NEA is responding to today’s announcement by Powergen of large price increases for domestic customers. The charity is warning that increases of 9.6% on gas and 8.9% on electricity will leave low-income households, who already struggle to heat their homes, out in the cold this winter.

NEA continues to be deeply concerned by the rising cost of domestic energy. Powergen are the latest company to announce large price hikes and NEA believes this a trend we will see continuing throughout the decade. NEA does, however recognise that Powergen has made provision to assist vulnerable customers with an £8 million package of energy efficiency measures. We welcome these measures, which will go some way to protect those most at risk this winter. Increases in the price of domestic energy are being blamed on soaring global oil prices that have reached record levels and forced wholesale gas prices up.
