       Challenges and Lessons Learnt
•   ‘Free’ – is hard to ‘sell’ and not always valued.
•   Freelance assessments allow greater flexibility.
•   CO detectors very popular.
•   Too many similar names for energy schemes.
•   Central government energy efficiency targets set
    schemes in competition.
•   Integrating other grant schemes very efficient.
•   Installing measures – not just about best price.
•   Vulnerable householders may need extra
    encouragement and support.
•   Many homes are hard to treat – next big challenge.
                 In Summary
• Warm Zone will visit every home in Kirklees by
  autumn 2009.
• Achieved political commitment from all parties.
• Partnership working real – not just about money.
• Additionality key to what can be achieved.
• Financial integration delivering maximum
  financial gain.
• Opportunities to start a low carbon economy –
  job creation, training, part of UK climate change
  target delivery.
