The housing association was named Landlord of the Year at the West Midlands Energy Efficiency Awards 2023, which were held in Birmingham on 8 June.

The award recognises whg’s commitment to improving the welfare and quality of life of customers through reducing fuel poverty and carbon emissions.

In the last year whg has invested more than £1 million in improving the energy efficiency of its homes, and made 1,046 of either thermal or heating improvement measures. These have included new windows and boilers and loft and wall insulation.

Paul Baker, Director of Energy and Programme Management, said: “We are extremely proud to win this award, which recognises the positive impact we are having on reducing our carbon footprint and addressing fuel poverty in the area.

“Walsall, our main operating area, has the tenth highest level of fuel poverty in the country. Our work to reduce energy bills makes a huge different to our customers,  as well as supporting our work to achieve net zero carbon by 2050.

“We continue to invest in our homes to improve their energy efficiency and and move all homes to an EPC rating of C or above over the next seven years.

The Energy Efficiency Awards provide public recognition for the excellent work the energy efficiency sector is doing in implementing energy efficiency schemes that help residents reduce their energy bills, tackle fuel poverty, and reduce carbon emissions, and to help encourage best practice within the energy industry as it works to improve UK housing stock.
