Councillor Richard Morris with the West Midlands Energy Efficiency Award 2024

Worcestershire County Council has won a West Midlands Energy Efficiency Award for the second year in a row.

The County Council picked up the award last night (Thursday) for Regional Council or Local Authority Body of the Year.

The award highlights councils that have shown a true commitment to promoting energy efficiency within their region and thanks them for their service to their local communities.
Councillor Richard Morris, Worcestershire County Council’s Cabinet Member for Environment, said: “This is a fantastic achievement and testament to the hard work and dedication that the team put in to promote energy efficiency in the county.

“It’s great that we’ve been recognised at this level again, following winning the same award last year. It shows just how much we’re doing to implement energy efficiency measures in Worcestershire.”

The award recognised the County Council’s work to promote energy efficiency schemes across the county, such as Solar Together, the Household Support Fund, Home Upgrade Grant Scheme and improvements to its estate.

The Council was recognised for the support offered to businesses, through Net Zero Worcestershire, Business Energy Efficiency Programme and the Low Carbon Opportunities Programme and the work the Council undertake in partnership with district councils.

The award also highlights the commitment to delivering Carbon Literacy training for staff and work to tackle Fuel Poverty with partners, as well as showcasing the expertise within the Council in supporting energy efficiency measures.
