Energy Advocate Powys

Severn Wye Energy Agency

The Energy Advocate Powys project is a partnership between Severn Wye, Powys County Council and community organisations like The HIVE, Pobl, The Bracken Trust and local foodbanks. It will provide targeted support to hard-to-reach people in rural areas who often fall through the net of conventional fuel poverty programmes. The project will embed trained Energy Advocate's within three areas in Powys covering Newtown, Llandrindod Wells and Brecon, areas have been selected based of higher level of need. The advocates will work alongside the council services, integrated health and community organisations to support people through the energy crisis, aiming to both alleviate and prevent fuel poverty. The partnership services will be able to refer directly to our Energy Advocates who will conduct home visits, provide energy efficiency advice, billing support and support with grant applications, and holding appointment-based and drop-in surgeries in partner hubs. This project will be essential for these communities to face the energy and cost of living crisis.
