Free smart meter training for SFHA Members
The SFHA is running a series of training days in partnership with Smart Energy GB, and supported by Energy Action Scotland, designed to provide tenant-facing housing association employees with all the information needed to understand smart meters and to inform tenants.
It’s Smart Energy GB’s task to help everyone in Great Britain understand smart meters, the national roll-out and how they can use their meters to get their gas and electricity under control.
Smart meters are replacing traditional energy meters. They measure how much gas and electricity is being used and share this directly and securely with the energy supplier. By the end of 2020, around 53 million smart meters will be fitted in over 30 million premises (households and microbusinesses) across Wales, Scotland and England.
The training will run from 10.00am–2.00pm and will be facilitated by a smart meter expert.
The sessions are designed to help housing association employees who communicate directly with tenants, e.g. housing officers, marketing and communications staff, welfare rights and financial inclusion staff. The training is designed specifically to help you engage with tenants, so attendees should only register if committed and able to talk to their tenants (and/or go on to train other tenant-facing colleagues) directly about smart meters and the benefits they bring.
Training sessions will be taking place on:
16 August 2016 – Glasgow
17 August 2016 – Edinburgh
23 August 2016 – Aberdeen
30 August 2016 – Stirling
2 September 2016 – Glasgow
Exclusively for SFHA housing association and co-operative members, these events are free to attend, and refreshments and lunch will be available. Places are limited and will be allocated on a first come, first served basis.
