Energy management

It's the responsibility of our Energy and Sustainability service to:

  • manage, control and monitor energy and water usage throughout the council 
  • to promote energy efficiency to our employees and partners.

The team contributes to the creation of a 'cleaner, greener, safer community' for North Ayrshire, through their dedication to reducing the council's carbon emissions.

Find out what we are doing to tackle climate change and meet the Scottish Government's 2050 carbon gas reduction target of 80%, in our Environmental Sustainability & Climate Change Strategy (PDF, 5.69mb).

We have implemented a programme of solar panel and biomass boiler installations across our schools and public buildings.

Improve your energy efficiency and help us deal with climate change. Find out how to make a difference by visiting the following websites:

Energy Efficient Scotland – Area Based Scheme

North Ayrshire Council has successfully secured funding from the Scottish Government’s Energy Efficiency Scotland: Area Based Schemes (EES:ABS) programme to enhance the energy efficiency of eligible* privately owned properties within North Ayrshire.

To deliver this scheme North Ayrshire Council are working with the Wise Group and Scottish Government’s Home Energy Scotland to engage with homeowners. Eligible residents will receive a letter from the Wise Group inviting them to participate in an Area Based Scheme project. This letter will outline the proposed energy efficiency works planned for your area and ask if you would be interested in joining the project.

Please contact Home Energy Scotland on 0808 808 2282 to register your interest.

If you have a question relating to the EES:ABS programme, please contact the Wise Group, by email: EES_ABS@thewisegroup.co.uk or telephone 0141 303 3131.

*All project areas are identified in line with the guidance issued by the Scottish Government.

ECO Flexible Eligibility

We continue to support our residents by accessing external funding where possible. The Energy Company Obligation (ECO) is an obligation on energy suppliers aimed at helping households cut their energy bills and reduce carbon emissions by installing energy saving measures. To access ECO Flexible Eligibility funding, Local Authorities have a legislative requirement to publish a Statement of Intent (SOI) which defines qualifying criteria. Our current SOI, along with superseded statements, are available:
