New chairman for Warmworks Scotland board
Warmworks Scotland has announced the appointment of David Green OBE as independent chairman of its board of directors.
David is the former chief executive of the Clean Energy Council in Australia and co-founder of fuel poverty charity National Energy Action, and will bring extensive international board-level experience in successfully delivering sustainable and clean energy initiatives both in the public and private sector.
As a £224 million joint venture between the Energy Saving Trust, Everwarm and Changeworks, Warmworks Scotland has appointed Green at a pivotal time in the delivery of the Scottish Government’s Warmer Homes Scotland programme.
Launched in 2015, Warmworks Scotland has already helped more than 4,000 vulnerable households across Scotland by installing a range of new energy-saving measures, with an average running cost saving per completed household of £312 per year and customer satisfaction feedback of 98 per cent.
Taking up the role immediately, Green’s tenure will primarily be focused on enhancing the performance and delivery of the Warmer Homes Scotland programme, which is a key part of the Scottish Government’s drive to tackle fuel poverty.
On his appointment, David Green said: “I am honoured to have been invited to chair the Warmworks board. It is a ground-breaking partnership that is already improving the lives of many across Scotland.
“I look forward to working with fellow board members to help Warmworks Scotland continue to take forward its work with the Scottish Government. The experience of the partners and the strong team at Warmworks has the potential to make a huge impact in communities across the country.”
Ross Armstrong, Warmworks Scotland contract director, added: “I am looking forward to working with David and am confident that under David’s leadership, the Warmworks Scotland Board will continue the positive start that has been made over the last year.
“This appointment represents the next chapter in our future; a future that will help more people, heat more homes, and improve the lives of people across Scotland through the sustainable reduction of fuel poverty.”
