Leeds energy efficiency contractor’s business heats up

A Leeds-based contractor which specialises in domestic energy efficiency improvements is ramping up its operation in the wake of growing demand.

Synergize, has recently relocated to larger premises at Fusion Court, Garforth to accommodate an expanding workforce after seeing turnover rocket to £7m.

The company is predicting a further 100% increase in turnover over the next 12 months as demand for energy efficiency improvements escalates.

This follows the introduction earlier this year of the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO), whereby energy companies are obliged to deliver carbon savings through providing funding for domestic improvements to vulnerable, low-income households and those living in hard-to-treat houses, helping these people in turn to reduce their fuel bills.

Synergize, which specialises in solid-wall insulation, boiler installations and renewable energy systems, operates across the North East and North West, employing more than 150 people.

The company works with local authorities, landlords, community groups and directly with residents to improve whole communities, installing measures that reduce carbon output, lower fuel bills and help to eradicate fuel poverty.

To date it has already delivered the equivalent of more than 50,000 tonnes of carbon savings through improvements to over 1000 properties.

Synergize’s managing director Peter Jones said: “The ECO funding scheme has really motivated the major energy companies to establish firm plans in order to deliver these carbon savings.

“In turn we’re seeing a sharp rise in demand for the specialist services we offer, in particular solid wall insulation as much of the ageing and non-traditionally built housing stock isn’t suitable for simpler measures such as cavity wall insulation.”
