Each winter, BHESCo provides free energy advice to vulnerable households at food banks and community centres throughout the city of Brighton and Hove.

This year, we were thrilled that our very own Dan Curtis was recognised for his hard work when he was named as ‘Heat Hero’ by the fuel poverty charity National Energy Action. He received his award at a prestigious ceremony that was held at the Houses of Parliament in London.

Daniel Curtis who steers with the delivery of BHESCo’s fuel poverty alleviation program says; “Its great to be recognised for all our hard work but it still feels there is so much more to do. There are an estimated 14,500 households who suffer from fuel poverty in Brighton and Hove and we won’t stop until cold homes are a thing of the past.”

Dan was joined by Hayley Carmichael from Sussex Community NHS Foundation Trust’s Care Without Carbon team who nominated him for the award, and by MP Dr Caroline Lucas

Hayley said: “We’ve worked closely with Dan on a few things now, supporting our staff and patients to manage energy use to cut carbon and save money, and importantly ensuring a warm and healthy home. We nominated him because what he and BHESCo do is a really positive example of how it is possible to support people to lead more sustainable, healthy lives.”
