Energy Ambassadors

Energy Ambassadors is our volunteer programme for 2021, which offers free training and support to Lancashire residents which can help you save money and reduce carbon emissions for yourselves, your family, friends and communities!

Those participating in the Energy Ambassador programme will learn:

  • the top ten habits and behaviours that save energy
  • how to understand energy bills and meters to avoid common mistakes
  • about the grants that are available for heating, insulation and solar panels
  • the wide range of help and support on offer from local organisations

If you are interested, the training sessions are currently being offered online over Zoom/ Microsoft Teams. There are two options for potential attendees:

1) Attend three separate 90 minute sessions, run over a 3-week period. Currently sessions run on the first 3 Friday mornings of each month which you can sign up for at greenrose.as.me

2) Attend a single full-day session, 10.00am to 3.00pm (including breaks). All-day sessions can be booked by an organisation if at least five people will be attending (whether staff, volunteers or clients). If you are interested in running a longer session please get in touch with us at info@greenrose.org.uk and we’ll send you more details.

“These free sessions will give really practical, straightforward advice with as little jargon as possible. Energy bills are going up and government grants are limited – so don’t miss out on the chance to save money and go green!”

“Supporting households to reduce energy bills is one of our key objectives, so we are delighted to be funding the Energy Ambassador programme. Powering our Communities is a £75,000 fund which is part of the Electricity North West’s commitment to supporting the growth of local and community energy to help meet the UK’s target of achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050”.
