ROCKWOOL Partners With British Gas To Launch Major New Drive To Insulate Britain’s Homes

Rockwool Ltd has announced that it has entered into a strategic partnership with the UK’s largest energy provider, British Gas, to provide insulation to their cavity and blown loft installation divisions.

The new British Gas and Rockwool offering will allow households to insulate their homes for free, or at low cost, as part of the Government’s Community Energy Saving Programme (CESP) and the Carbon Emission Reduction Target (CERT). The new partnership will also see UK homeowners being offered Rockwool cavity, blown loft and roll insulation in a bid to help them save money on their energy bills.

Rockwool blown loft insulation provides a faster alternative to traditional rolled insulation and allows awkward loft spaces to be easily insulated. Rockwool cavity wall insulation is also being provided through the scheme to help reduce heat loss through walls. As well as helping homeowners save money on their energy bills, both these solutions are also non-combustible and provide sound protection.

Rockwool and British Gas worked together in November 2010 for Historic Royal Palaces on a rigorous insulation project for Hampton Court Palace, Kensington Palace’s Orangery and the Tower of London’s Queen’s House. The completion of the project to insulate these buildings will cut a combined Ł130,000 from their gas bills and reduced their CO2 emissions by 850 tonnes over the lifetime of the insulation.

Rockwool and British Gas also offer the joint branded EcoRock – An external wall system that can be used on hard to treat homes. This system is more commonly used under the CESP scheme for social housing.

Hans Schreuder, Managing Director, Rockwool UK said: “Rockwool Ltd has worked with British Gas over the last three years to assist them with providing a range of insulation solutions to their customers via third party distributors and installers. This new venture with British Gas will mean that the consumer will receive energy efficiency solutions quicker and more efficiently with British Gas providing a “one stop shop”. Rockwool is very proud to be working alongside a great British brand such as British Gas to deliver Rockwool’s insulation solutions to homes throughout the UK.”

Daryl Gambarana, British Gas Partnership Manager, Rockwool UK added: “Having worked alongside British Gas for over the last three years, we have been fortunate to see the exciting prospects, innovations and market trends that lie ahead in the energy efficiency sector. This venture provides Rockwool with a strong partner in British Gas for current and future schemes”

Jon Kimber, Managing Director of British Gas New Energy said: “Rockwool has developed an innovative range of insulation products which allows us to get the benefits of warmer and more efficient homes to our customers quickly and easily. Insulation is the most cost effective way for our customers to use less energy, reduce their carbon footprint and cut their bills.”

For a limited time, British Gas is offering free insulation (either loft or cavity wall) to all its energy customers.
