Gong for green energy ‘pioneers’

25th October 2022

Congratulations to North Lanarkshire Council, who – thanks in part to Procast’s expertise – made an incredible £18million saving in energy costs in just a year and  won a prestigious award as a result.

The local authority – longstanding clients of the Procast Group – were named Council Of The Year at the national Energy Efficiency Awards.

At the star-studded awards ceremony in Birmingham – hosted by TV’s Dan Walker – North Lanarkshire were the only Scottish local authority among 15 category nominees and were hailed as “energy pioneers”.

Procast, who have delivered numerous sustainable energy projects for NLC and for other housing agencies elsewhere in the country, nominated the council for the prize.

Awards organisers noted that the work completed on thousands of council properties included air source heat pumps, cavity wall, loft and floor insulation, double and triple glazing, solar panels, battery storage units and single room heat recovery ventilation.

They also highlighted community benefits such as the provision of supported employment positions, including apprenticeships and university placements, plus the development of relationships with new local suppliers.

Awards director Gary Braybrooke said the winners are “true energy pioneers” and are “at the forefront of implementing significant change which impacts the lives of millions of people”.

NLC Project Manager Gerry McWilliams said: “This award recognises the council’s investment to ensure our housing stock is energy efficient for our tenants.”

A Procast spokesman said: “We are delighted for North Lanarkshire Council and proud to have put them forward for this Energy Efficiency Award.

”We have a longstanding relationship with them that will continue to grow as the need for green technologies in social housing settings increases in the years to come.”
