A fresh opening in the UK & Ireland for Renewable Energy Companies
Dear Energy Conservation Entrepreneur,
We wish to serve those with market leading products/ services or niche market challengers who want to enter the UK & Ireland market place.
By working with a team that launched two world leaders into the UK Ecobods was formed for a 2013 launch to help new entrants into the renewables sector in the UK & Ireland since the zero carbon building from 2016 identified the UK as a hot market for non-resident companies.
Ecobods save the need for both premises or staff that will allow fast cost-effective sales in the UK & Ireland and also provides prompt, personal service when arranging renewable energy products to installers or regional distributors.
Its independent research found that almost half of wholesale customers in the UK were dissatisfied with the service they were receiving from their suppliers and 89pc did
not feel that the marketing support they were receiving on such accounts was competitive.
Apart from just being an agent we can actually hold your stock for you and distribute from our warehouse and by Spring 2013 a non-resident or resident company will be able to demonstrate goods at our Energy Conservation Centre on the Gloucestershire, Herefordshire & Worcestershire borders, which is expected to create new businesses and jobs nationwide after the construction phase.
WHAT IS ECOBODS?
we are people who introduce people who want to sell things to people who want to buy things
By focusing on the success of your client, who we believe are local companies, involved with energy saving product sales and installation,
We train them to lead the market on a regional basis and with our UK based support, we are helping others to be successful and eventually, you and we will gain larger market share.
Whilst Global Warming is more important than our Global Financial Collapse we understand that this slows down global growth.
Our manufacturers agency can carry your card and launch your green or fairtrade products.

A huge round of funding is still available for social landlords to make homes warmer and cosier
Funding to get low carbon heating into the homes of hundreds of social housing tenants across the nation is still up for grabs for local authorities, housing associations and other registered providers of social housing.
The Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) social landlords competition is being reopened, with a
millions of pounds available for social landlords to get kit such as biomass boilers, solar hot water panels and heat pumps into even more social tenants’ homes. This will makes tenants’ homes warmer, cosier and far more energy efficient.
The Renewable Heat Premium Payment (RHPP) social landlords competition is being reopened, with a millions of pounds available for social landlords to get kit such as biomass boilers, solar hot water panels and heat pumps into even more social tenants’ homes. This will makes tenants’ homes warmer, cosier and far more energy efficient.
There is still money available thanks to the high value for money of projects already allocated funding under this scheme, and now social landlords who did not put in an application the first time round are being encouraged to get involved.
72 projects have already been allocated money under the competition, which ran from 28 May 2012 to 4 July 2012, with winners announced on 24 July. The Energy Saving Trust (EST) will now approach these winners to see if they want to bid for additional funding to install more renewable heating systems in their housing stock.
The competition is also being reopened to social housing providers that did not make applications.
Energy and Climate Change Minister Greg Barker said:
“We have already awarded nearly £5million to 72 projects under this year’s scheme, helping householders stay warm this winter and move away from expensive old heating systems to new clean renewable ones.
“But the high value for money of the bids we have received to date means that there is still money up for grabs and I would urge social landlords across the nation to apply and take advantage of all this scheme has to offer.”
Registered providers for social housing, such as local authorities and social housing associations, can bid for funds up to the Sterling equivalent of €200,000, which currently amounts to around £156,000 each. Up to £2.5million of additional funding will be allocated under this element of the competition.
DECC is making improvements to the scheme in line with feedback from participants, including lengthening the application window to nine weeks and moving the administrative requirement on submission of energy bills to the project delivery stage.
Phillip Sellwood, CEO at the Energy Saving Trust said:
“Energy Saving Trust has a long established track record in the renewables industry, which will enable us to provide valuable support to all applicants, offering guidance and clarification where possible both pre and post award.
“All information to support completion of applications for the scheme is available on the Energy Saving Trust website along with information about successful phase one applicants.”
Bids will be evaluated by EST on criteria such as value for money, type of fuel being replaced, energy efficiency measures to be installed and track record on delivering similar projects. Final decisions will be made by a DECC panel of experts.
The scheme is being managed by EST and interested applicants can apply online. The EST website and helpline has lots of help and advice on the application process and requirements of the scheme. Interested applicants can call 0300 123 1234 (England and Wales) or 0800 512 012 (Scotland).
The closing date for applications is 9 October 2012 and successful bidders will be announced shortly afterwards.
The RHPP Communities Scheme is also still open for applications. Up to £8m is available to support communities to deliver clusters of domestic renewable heating systems and the closing date for applications is 7 September 2012. More details are available on the EST website[External link].
Heat is the single biggest reason we use energy in our society. We use more energy for heating than for transport or the generation of electricity. This year the UK will spend around £33 billion on heat across our economy.
We use heat to keep our homes and offices warm, and we use energy to cool them in hot weather. We also use heat to provide us with hot water, cook our food, and manufacture the goods such as steel, iron, cement and chemicals, upon which our economy depends.
Today the vast majority of our heat is produced by burning fossil fuels (around 80% from gas alone), and as a result heat is responsible for around a third of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions
This is unsustainable. The 2011 Carbon Plan set out that if the UK is to play its part in the global effort to combat climate change, we will need our buildings to be virtually zero carbon by 2050. Achieving this can help reduce our exposure to the kind of volatile fossil fuel prices which led to a 9.4% rise in average gas prices last year, driven overwhelmingly by the wholesale gas price on global markets.
The transformation of heat-generation and heat-use will create new markets and new opportunities. The EU market for heat pumps alone was responsible for three-quarters of million units sold last year, and there is a chance for the UK to capture more of this market as we make the change to low carbon heat. This will be a national transformation, and also a local one, with different solutions for different localities and geographies as households, businesses and local authorities choose the approach that will work best for them.
The publication of the strategy sets out how we supply and use heat today and describes how the heat system will need to evolve over time, identifying the substantial changes required across our economy and the role for government.
The document does not propose new policy proposals at this stage, it provides the strategic framework within which polices will be developed and invites our stakeholders to give their views.
Once the deadline for responses has passed the Department will publish a summary of the comments received. Our intention is to develop specific policy proposals within the next 12 months.
Comments can be submitted by 24 May to email@example.com. It would be helpful if responses could be framed in direct response to the questions in the document which are listed together in annex.
Although we would prefer comments by email, enquiries can also be addressed to:
