Creating homes and places where people want to live

Engergiesprong

Nottingham City Homes were the first organisation in the country to introduce the award-winning Energiesprong programme. 

The Energiesprong approach, pioneered in the Netherlands, upgrades a home with innovative energy-saving and energy-generating measures, including new highly insulated outside walls and windows, a solar roof, and a state of the art heating system. The end result is homes that are almost net-zero carbon. 

Starting as a pilot in Sneinton, ten of our older hard-to-heat houses were completely retrofitted, with the support of a European Regional Development Fund grant of £5m.

Through this project we will improve the homes of our tenants and leaseholders, as well as creating new local employment and training opportunities.
