How it works
CESP In Practice
TheCommunity Energy Saving Programmeconsists of significant packages of energy efficiency measures to households in low-incomecommunities.
The programme is designed to:
- Bring real CO2 and fuel bill savings
- Foster engagement at local and community levels
- Help to inform future approaches to energy efficiency
All Measures Installed and agreed with Ofgem
Improved energy efficiency for communities in the lowest 10% income deciles in England; 15% in Wales and Scotland
A wide variety of measures available
Whole house and community approach
Saving of nearly 18m tonnes of CO2 emissions
£350m of energy efficiency measures
Envisage to benefiting some 90,000 households
Community partnership has been at the heart of CESP
Suppliers and generators work with community partners and local authorities to deliver measures.
British Gas and local authorities identify eligible areas
Local groups help to engage communities on the ground
British Gas manages the scheme, provides products, services, and financial support
Each and every party or group can add value at each stage of the process
..The largest CESP funds available - 3 times greater than next largest obligated partner equalling 32% of the total..
..an estimated £120m commitment supporting CESP projects over 3 years..
..representing a Carbon reduction target of 5.7 million tonnes of CO2 from the poorest communities in the country..
..the first energy supplier to announce the first ten communities to benefit from the scheme in 2009..
..the first scheme in the country in Walsall..
..currently 53 CESP schemes underway throughout Britain and to date 54% of the obligation has been contracted..
Each county has an IMD, designed to identify small concentrations of multiple deprivation.
Each IMD is made of a different range of indicators, including:
The Income indicator has however been a driver in the selecting process.
Solid Wall Internal Insulation
Solid Wall External Insulation
Cavity Wall Insulation
Flat roof and Under roof insulation
New Heating Control
Loft top up
District heatingBiomass (low heat load)
Dist heating Biomass:
Solid Wall /Fuel Switch
Virgin Loft & Heat Controls from Fuel Switch
High Heat Load
Solid Wall & Fuel Switch
3 Bed Non Terrace
2 Bed Terrace
3 Bed Terrace
Less than 30%, minimum volume 100 homes
1 & 2 Bed Flats
Let’s assume a Local Authority has a housing stock of 603 Properties:
362 properties will have to be included to achieve a 60% penetration rate.
115 Mid Terrace 3 bed
115 End Terrace 3 bed
132 Semi detached 3 bed
Total Scheme Cost £3,540,000
Loft top up
British Gas (£3,383,000)
Fuel switch from electric heating
Client Contribution £157,290
Exterior Wall Insulation
Saving 173,491 tonnes of Carbon
Additionally adding Heat pumps instead of a gas fuel switch would make it a free scheme
A fuel switch from Coalalso improves the funding

Working in partnership with Walsall Council and WHG, their residents were the first in Britain to benefit from a CESP scheme
The properties have, and still are being given external cladding and loft insulation to reduce heat loss, as well as new, energy efficient boilers
As a result, the residents are benefiting from warmer homes, lower bills and receive advice from experts about simple steps they can take to save even more energy

I haven't had the heating on hardly since it was fitted, only for the hot water

Saving her at least £28 per month!
The Carmarthen CESP scheme is jointly funded by CESP and Arbed and is a very good example of what can be achieved.
The scheme will deliver over 100,000 tonnes in Carbon Savings
Both council tenants and private home owners will have the ability to:
1. Replace G-Rated boilers
2. Add External Wall insulation
3. Add Loft insulation – both virgin and top up
4. Add Cavity Wall insulation
All these will improve the SAP rating of their homes at highly subsidised prices.
The Cartrefi Cowny scheme is one of the largest with 50 upgraded properties.
CO2 Savings on this scheme reach 6,948 tonnes in Carbon savings.
Achieving a U Value below 0.35W/m2K from U values over 2.0W/m2K previously.
