Purpose statement

AgilityEco is a market leading provider of low carbon energy services to householders, businesses and public sector clients, based in Sutton, Surrey and Aylesbury, Bucks. An important aspect of our business is managing large scale energy efficiency, fuel poverty and innovation projects across Great Britain on behalf of local partners, which include Local Authorities, social landlords, supply chain companies and referral partners such as not-for-profit organisations. The major programmes we operate at present include:

ECHO (the Emergency Central Heating Offer) – offering free repair and replacement of boilers for fuel poor and vulnerable households referred by local authorities and local referral agencies

LEAP (the Local Energy Advice Partnership) – a free service, providing important advice, support and energy saving measures to fuel poor and vulnerable households referred by local authorities and local referral agencies

WHF (Warm Homes Fund) – offering free gas mains connections and first-time central heating to fuel poor and vulnerable households whose homes don’t have a central heating system – in Greater Manchester and ten councils in the South of England

Help to Heat – providing the customer support, administration and marketing for fuel-poor gas mains extensions on behalf of SGN, who manage the gas distribution network in the South of England
