Energy advice workshops

1200x383-energy advice  (1).png

Our free online energy workshops enable older people to get a better understanding of their household energy use, supporting them to stay warm and save money on their bills, helping them to be prepared if they experience a powercut, and giving them useful information about the future of heating and transport.

The Energy Matters workshop covers a range of topics, including energy efficiency, accessing benefits and financial support which could help with energy costs and looking at future options for heating. 

The Preparing for a Powercut workshop covers making an emergency plan, preparing an emergency survival kit and knowing who to turn to, as well as many other useful hints and tips.

The Future Energy and Heating Options workshop aims to help older people to get a better understanding of what the future of powering and heating our homes will look like. 

The Electric Cars workshop cuts through the jargon to enable you to confidently decide if moving to greener transport is right for you.

All of these workshops are free to attend and will provide useful information for older people and those who support them. 

You can take part in our workshops by video using the free Zoom app. All that’s needed is a laptop / computer / tablet / smartphone and an internet connection. We do the rest! If after the workshop you would like advice specific to your situation, we can arrange a phone call with our helpline's energy adviser.

This training is funded by SGN through a new partnership aimed at helping more older people across Scotland get access to the help that is available to them.
