Press Release:
NIA leads the way for Solid Wall Insulation

Release Date 08 August 2013

The National Insulation Association (NIA) is leading the way in transforming the Solid Wall Insulation (SWI) market and is urging plasterers and dry liners interested in maximising the opportunities for external and internal wall insulation under the Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (ECO) to contact them without delay to find out about the support available to NIA members.

With around 7 million uninsulated solid wall properties in the UK and continuing rising energy bills, it is recognised that a major increase in SWI installations is required under the Green Deal and ECO to support the achievement of the Government’s climate change targets and deliver major savings on consumer's energy bills.

Neil Marshall, Chief Executive of the NIA, commented: "The NIA now has over 200 members which as well as insulation companies includes Green Deal Providers, Scheme Managers, energy suppliers and other key stakeholders within the UK Energy Efficiency Market. We recognise that Plasterers and Dry Liners may well be looking to get involved in the Green Deal and ECO and we can offer a wide range of services and support including:

- Expert advice and guidance on how to access and maximise the opportunities from the Green Deal and ECO and other sources of funding.

- Active promotion of NIA members to householders and key organisations involved in the funding and delivery of major energy efficiency programmes (Local Authorities, Housing Associations, Green Deal Providers and energy suppliers).

- Access to insulation training programmes and grants.

- Invitations to attend quarterly local forum meetings and our Annual Conference to obtain the latest information and advice and benefit from networking opportunities.

- Lobbying Government and other key external organisations on behalf of our members."

Plasterers and Dry Liners seeking to maximise the business opportunities from the Green Deal and ECO should look to join the NIA in order to benefit from the support that it can provide.
